Amazon Studios announced today the greenlight of Tampa Baes, an 8-episode docuseries from 3 Ball Productions that follows a young group of lesbian friends in Tampa Bay, an ever-growing gay hotspot on the Florida shoreline. Tampa Baes will premiere this fall exclusively on Prime Video in the US, UK, Australia, Canada, India, Ireland, and New Zealand with a worldwide release to follow.
The logline: Meet the Tampa Baes…The young lesbian “it-crowd” navigating and celebrating life in Tampa Bay – Florida’s LGBTQ+ hub and the place to see and be seen. Always ready for an adventure or a good party, this group of loyal friends – and sometimes more than friends – is ambitious and unapologetic while constantly battling stereotypes and labels. With all eyes on these fun-loving women at this pivotal moment in their personal and professional lives, there’s not a challenge or hot-button issue they won’t tackle, even if it means getting real with each other. The Tampa Baes include Ali Myers, Nelly Ramirez, Shiva Pishdad, Jordan Whitley, Marissa Gialousis, Summer Mitchell, Cuppie Bragg, Brianna Murphy, Haley Grable, Melanie Posner, Olivia Mullins, and Mack McKenzie.
Tampa Baes is produced by 3 Ball Productions, a 3BMG company, with Reinout Oerlemans, Ross Weintraub, Jeff Altrock, Paul O’Malley and Melissa Bidwell serving as executive producers with Amazon Studios.
