Mark your calendars and/or set your DVRs for March 2. That’s when Logo will offer a special preview of two new queer-themed interwoven British dramas that will “explore 21st-century gay life in all its powerful, witty, dark and uplifting guises through the lens of two disparate generations.” Cucumber and Banana, the latest offerings from Queer as Folk creator Russell T. Davies, will be previewed following the March 2 season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race.
According to Logo’s press release, the hour-long Cucumber explores the lives and misadventures of Henry Best (Vincent Franklin) and his long-suffering boyfriend of nine years, Lance Sullivan (Cyril Nri). The half-hour Banana will follow the individual lives of younger characters orbiting around Henry’s world, telling stories of modern love – the romantic, the obsessed, the hopeful, the lonely, the lost, and the lucky – in an urban Manchester, England setting.
The two series will officially premiere stateside on April 13 but you can take a look at a special preview of all the upcoming drama below.
