Last week we learned that the new Queer as Folk, which will be set in New Orleans, was partly inspired by the Pulse nightclub tragedy.
Now that the first full trailer has been officially released, we can see exactly how a Pulse-like attack at the fictional Babylon nightclub fits in with the story.
The new show, set to debut on Peacock June 9, reimagines the American version of the series that debuted in 2000 but in a modern context. As developed by Stephen Dunn, it will focus on the issues facing a diverse group of LGBTQ friends. Russell T. Davies, who produced the American version and created the original British version of the show, will also executive produce.
Jesse James Keitel, Johnny Silby, Fin Argus, Devin Way, CG, and Ryan O’Connell star, with Juliette Lewis, Kim Cattrall, Lukas Gage, and Nyle DiMarco all appear in recurring roles as well.
