Showtime To Encore 'Queer As Folk,' 'The L Word'

Programmer Honors Gay Pride Month with Cross-Platform Runs 5/27/2014 1:45 PM Eastern

Honoring Gay Pride Month in June and beyond, Showtime is reprising series Queer as Folk and The L Word.

 

The premium programmer will air all seasons of the groundbreaking homosexual and lesbian series on Showtime Showcase from June through November.

 

From June 2-30, the network will air back-to-back episodes of both critically-acclaimed series weekdays at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). Then, starting on July 3, back-to-back episodes will air every Thursday night through November 13.

 

 

Subscribers can also catch up on the full five seasons of Queer as Folk, which explored the lives of young gays and lesbians in Pittsburgh and the six seasons of The L Word, which centered on both gays and straight folk in Los Angeles through stories of career, family, struggles, friendship and romantic relationships, on Showtime on Demand. The series will also be accessible to the network's authenticated service Showtime Anytime, starting this summer.

 

 

These iconic series were hailed for tackling important issues and shattering stereotypes, and were both honored by the GLAAD Media Awards for outstanding drama series. Viewers can expect more from The L Word executive producer and creator Ilene Chaiken in the form of a documentary which will premiere on Showtime this summer.
