What is old is new again; first it was announced that Will & Grace would return to NBC then ABC said it was bringing back its popular show Roseanne. Now Netflix has revived the Bravo TV series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, but this time with a new cast and in a new city.
Moving from the more politically progressive northeast this new cast will be based in Atlanta and roam Dixie. The new Fab Five includes Bobby Berk as the show’s design expert; Karamo Brown will be the cast’s cultural attache (so to speak); Antoni Porowski will manage all things related to food and wine; Jonathan Van Ness is responsible for personal grooming; and Tan France will lead the charge in the fashion department.
The Netflix teaser that dropped earlier this week opens with the lines, “The original show was fighting for tolerance. Our fight is for acceptance.” I’m not sure I really agree with that but you get the gist of this light-hearted formulaic series that will try to make America a little more accepting (and hopefully more polite) – one makeover at a time.
