The first trailer has arrived for “Tales of the City,” the upcoming ten-episode Netflix limited series which serves as a follow-up to the trilogy of mini-series that ran from 1993-2001 and were based on Armistead Maupin’s books.
Laura Linney, Paul Gross and Olympia Dukakis reprise their roles from the previous works. In the new series, Linney’s Mary Ann returns to present-day San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter Shawna (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian (Gross), twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career.
Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann quickly is drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Dukakis), her chosen family and a new generation of queer young residents living at 28 Barbary Lane. The new series is slated to premiere June 7th on the streamer.
