Netflix revival of “Tales of the City,” based on the books by prolific San Francisco writer Armistead Maupin dropped it’s first trailer today.
Based on “Maryann in Autumn” the 8th book in the Tales storyline:
Mary Ann Singleton returns to “present-day San Francisco, where she is reunited with her daughter Shawna and ex-husband Brian, twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann is quickly drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal, her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.”
The Original TotC aired in 1993, and Laura Linney who played Maryann returns — with her co-star from that production, Olympia Dukakis, as magical landlord Anna Madrigal — to the mythical house on Barbary Lane in which so many memories were made.
You can watch the dropped trailer/teaser below.
I must admit being a fan of the original mini-series and the books. I got chills.
