From 2003 to 2007, five gay men schooled clueless straight dudes on how to be better people, through lessons in fashion, food, wine, grooming, culture, and interior design. The Bravo series Queer Eye For the Straight Guy became a sensation, launched TV personalities Ted Allen and Carson Kressley, and brought a bit of queer culture into homes across America. Now Netflix is resurrecting the series with a new cast, new setting, evolved focus, and a streamlined name.
Here’s the first trailer for Queer Eye.
Here’s the official synopsis from Netflix:
It’s been fifteen years since the Emmy Award-winning series Queer Eye for the Straight Guy revolutionized reality television. The series returns to Netflix and is going global, introducing audiences around the world to a modern aesthetic, diverse perspective and a brand new Fab Five: Antoni Porowski (Food & Wine),Bobby Berk (Interior Design), Karamo Brown (Culture), Jonathan Van Ness (Grooming) and Tan France (Fashion). This season Queer Eye trades its original New York setting for communities in and around Atlanta, Georgia. Our new Fab Five will forge relationships with men and women from a wide array of backgrounds and beliefs often contrary to their own, touching on everything from LGBTQ rights and social commentary to how to make the best farm-to-table guacamole and more!
Netflix also offers Five Fab Ways to Thrive in 2018:
1. Culture - Stay informed. Speak up and speak out
2. Food - Eat Root to Stem
3. Design - Find that one piece you LOVE and go from there
4. Fashion - You don’t need to spend a fortune to look good
5. Grooming - Chinstrap beards are not our friends!
Queer Eye launches globally on Netflix February 7th.
