The groundbreaking reality show bridged a gap between gay and straight viewers.
It’s been quite a while since we saw last the masters of meterosexuality on television, but this year Netflix is bringing back the reality show “Queer Eye for the Straight Guy” reports Entertainment Weekly.
Ordained the “Fab Five,” the gay stylists respond to straight men who have no sense of style, hygiene or overall game.
The “Queer” guys come in to save the day with advice on everything from clothing and cooking to, ironically how to woo the ladies.
“In a time when America stands divided and the future seems uncertain, a team of five brave men will try to bring us closer together with laughter, heart, and just the right amount of moisturizer,” reads a statement from the producers.
“The Emmy Award-winning Queer Eye is back and ready to Make America Fabulous Again. With a new Fab 5 and the show’s toughest missions to date, Queer Eye moves from the Big Apple to turn the Red States pink — one makeover at a time.”
The groundbreaking makeover show ran on Bravo Network from 2003 to 2007 and starred Jai Rodriguez, Carson Kressley, Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, and Tom Filicia.
Eight episodes have been ordered of this re-imagined version, and they are casting for a new set of gurus although the original cast members may have some sort of involvement.
Queer Eye won critical praise from LGBT groups such as GLAAD which awarded the show in 2004 and 2005 with an Outstanding Reality Program award.
Mainstream entertainment also honored the show, giving it the Emmy for Outstanding Reality Program in 2004.
