'Queer as Folk' Reboot Is Coming to Peacock!

Queer as Folk is coming back!

The hit series, which began in the ’90s as a UK series before being adapted in North America, is being reimagined in a new series from creator Stephen Dunn for Peacock, Variety reported Thursday (April 8).

The show received a straight-to-series order, and is described as a modern take on the original UK series, chronicling the lives of a group of friends in New Orleans whose lives are transformed following tragedy.

Queer as Folk was more than just a show, it was a ground-breaking and necessary voice for so many people. Stephen’s new version for Peacock arrives at yet another pivotal moment in our culture,” said NBCUniversal’s Lisa Katz.

The original show ran for 10 episodes between 1999 and 2000 in the UK, and was followed by a North American remake in 2000, which ran for five seasons.

“It is a surreal honor to adapt the notoriously groundbreaking series by Russell T. Davies. When the show originally aired, the idea of unapologetic queer stories on TV was so provocative that I felt I could only watch Queer as Folk in secret. But so much has changed in the last 20 years and how wonderful would it be if the next generation didn’t have to watch Queer as Folk alone in their dank basements with the sound muted, but with their family and friends and the volume cranked all the way to the max,” said Stephen Dunn, who will write, direct and executive produce, as well as directing the pilot.

There are no details yet on casting or a release date.

'The Office' Is Being Watched More on Peacock Than It Was on Netflix!

The Office is now streaming at a new home – and it’s doing big numbers!

The show is being streamed more on Peacock than it was on Netflix, according to NBCUniversal CEO Jeff Shell, via Deadline.

On Comcast’s fourth-quarter earnings call, he mentioned that the beloved sitcom, which NBCU brought back from Netflix in a $500 million licensing deal, is proof that the company’s commitment to streaming will be successful for the network.

“We’re seeing people who are watching The Office on Peacock are watching lots of our other comedies. It’s really driving Parks & Recreation and really driving Brooklyn Nine-Nine, amongst others. So, it’s kind of an ecosystem,” he said adding that it’s “like broadcast, where we can cross-promote people into different things. That certainly seems to be working.”

Shell did not elaborate on his assessment with any specific data,” Deadline noted.

Comcast also said Peacock had 33 million sign-ups as of this week and brought in $100 million in revenue during the fourth quarter, which ended on December 31.

“Losses on Peacock are estimated to be $2 billion for the 2020 and 2021, CFO Mike Cavanagh said, matching projections before launch,” the outlet added.

The announcement comes less than two months after its season one premiere on Peacock.

The series is a sequel to the 1990s teen comedy featuring several original cast members.

“I’m thrilled that Saved by the Bell has been renewed. I’ve been blown away by all the love for the show and can’t wait to go back and make more episodes. Hopefully we stay on Peacock for many more seasons, and then in 30 years, somebody does a reboot of our reboot and invents the threeboot,” says showrunner and executive producer Tracey Wigfield.

Here’s show summary: “In the new Saved by the Bell, Zack Morris (Mark-Paul Gosselaar), now governor of California, gets into political trouble for closing too many underfunded high schools and proposes sending affected students to some of the more affluent schools — including his alma mater, Bayside. An influx of new students gives the privileged kids of Bayside a needed dose of reality.”

The cast includes Haskiri Velazquez, Josie Totah, Alycia Pascual-Peña, Mitchell Hoog, Belmont Cameli, Dexter Darden and John Michael Higgins. Original cast members Elizabeth Berkley Lauren and Mario Lopez are also regulars, and Mark-Paul Gosselaar recurs.

Tiffani Thiessen, who plays Kelly Kapowski Morris on the reboot, can confirm just who Mac’s real dad is.
