'Queer Eye for the Straight Guy' being revived by Netflix
UPI News Service, 01/25/2017
"Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" is making a comeback.
Netflix is rebooting the early 2000s Bravo hit.
"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," said a statement from the producers to Entertainment Weekly.
The show, which originally starred Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, and Jai Rodriguez, will feature a new "Fab 5" and move "from the Big Apple to turn the Red States pink - one makeover at a time."
Each member of the Fab 5 on Queer Eye use their area of expertise -- fashion, food and wine, interior design, grooming, pop culture-- to make over a straight guy.
"Queer Eye," which originally ran for five seasons, won an Emmy for Outstanding Reality Series in 2004.
