Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City: trailer

Netflix has released a full trailer for Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City coming in June.

The 10 part series is the fourth instalment in the melodrama, first seen in 1993 and later in 1998 & 2001.

Inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin, Netflix Original Limited Series Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City begins a new chapter in the beloved story. Mary Ann (Laura Linney) returns to present-day San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Paul Gross), 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 (Olympia Dukakis), her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane.

Working Title’s Andrew Stearn, Liza Chasin, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner executive produce.

  1. Trailer looks faaabulous and can’t wait to see it!!! Was really hoping they’d make the original series available for binge watching to reacquaint with the residents of Barnaby Lane, but doesn’t look like this is going to happen sadly. Still excited for the new series though
