Russell T. Davies who created the original (and MUCH superior to his USA version) BBC drama “Queer As Folk’ is back at Showtime cable network with a new gay drama series in development there titled Cucumber.
Davies who brought to Showtime the a much more stereotypical and almost self deprecating American version of QAF (based on Davies’ UK version), ran for 5 seasons on Showtime, but eventually became too unrealistic for even for gay American audiences.
Cucumber, the new series Davies has in development with Showtime.is to bring us more intimate views of the lives of gay men. While details are few and far between on the series itself and it is still in the early stages of development.
Lets hope that after 10 years and Torchwood that Davies this time brings us at least a few positive gay role-model characters. But with a title like Cucumber, I’m not exactly holding my breath.
