‘Queer Eye’ Revived by Netflix for ‘Red State Tour’ — USA’s Last Hope?
In the event marches, debates or town halls aren't enough to seal the political fissure that's developed between American political parties in 2017, Netflix is hoping a group of five gay men and their choice beauty regimens will to the trick.
Queer Eye, which originally ran on Bravo from 2003 to 2007, will get the reboot treatment from Netflix, according to Entertainment Weekly. But where the show originally catered to clients in New York City, the Fab 5 — which will be comprised of a brand new group of men — will take to states that are a little less familiar with the cosmopolitan.
Rest assured, though, Carson Kressley and his vogue pals will likely be involved in the production — at least peripherally.
"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,” producers said in a statement.. “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."
Netflix has ordered eight episodes from show creator.
