Tales of the City Featurette and Images for a Flashback Episode

-

Netflix has released two first look images and a featurette for their upcoming limited series Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City, described as “the new chapter in the beloved franchise that has spanned generations.” You can check out first look images of Jen Richards as young Anna Madrigal and Daniela Vega as Ysela from a flashback episode focused on Anna’s arrival to San Francisco. The episode depicts 1966 San Francisco and the Compton’s Cafeteria Riot, one of the first events of LGBTQ activism in the U.S. The pic is in our gallery below, and you can scroll down for the Tales of the City featurette.

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.

Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City is a Working Title Television and NBCUniversal International studios production for Netflix. Lauren Morelli serves as Showrunner and Executive Producer, alongside Executive Producer/Director Alan Poul (a producer of Tales since the 1994 miniseries), and Executive Producers Armistead Maupin and Laura Linney. Working Title’s Andrew Stearn, Liza Chasin, Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner executive produce.

Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City will premiere on Netflix on June 7. Are you guys excited for the limited series? Let us know in the comments.
