It looks like, at long last, there’s going to be a gay cable channel. These are very exciting times. But I’m having trouble imagining what the network will be like. And so, I turn to you, O Dopers, to help visualize some of the programming.
It’d be great to see a drama based on a gay character dealing with his/her sexuality, from realization to coming out and beyond, in the context of society’s current mixed attitudes towards gays.
I’d also like to see a good show devoted to gay politics, an interview/news format. Seems pretty inevitable, really.
It’d also be interesting to see a show, kind of like Biography, devoted to coming-out stories.
Maybe even the live version of Dykes to Watch Out For. Seems perfectly suited to TV.
One thing I’d really like to see is the gay version of Trading Spaces. The mind reels at simply imagining the possibilities. And the train wrecks would be amazing…
So, what comes to mind? How would you fill up a prime-time gay TV schedule? Or wait… daytime schedule, too… gay soap operas! Who’ll be the gay Oprah? What do you think?
