Reality makeover series “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy,” which aired on Bravo from 2003 to 2007 and won an Emmy in 2004, is being revived by Netflix. The digital streamer has ordered eight episodes of the reboot, to begin production in the spring. Returning are “Queer Eye” co-creators David Collins and Michael Williams of Scout Productions, who will executive produce with the company’s Rob Eric. No casting information has been announced.
Per Netflix, “in a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer. The Emmy Award-winning “Queer Eye” is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show’s toughest missions to date, “Queer Eye” moves from the Big Apple to turn the red states pink one makeover at a time.”
The original “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” starred Ted Allen (now a favorite host on the Food Network), Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Jai Rodriguez and Carson Kressley, who is competing this season of “The New Celebrity Apprentice.” On the series, the team — each of whom was an expert in a field like fashion, style or culture — would help a straight man revamp his life.
