TV Note: 'Queer' drama is renewed

Friday, March 09, 2001

By Rob Owen, Post-Gazette TV Editor

Showtime has renewed the Pittsburgh-set drama series "Queer as Folk" for a second season of 20 episodes. Currently in its first season and airing at 10 p.m. Sundays, the series chronicles the lives and loves of gay men in their 20s and 30s. Though Pittsburgh is the setting, the series is filmed solely in Toronto.

" 'Queer as Folk' has been a tremendous success for our network, both in terms of critical acclaim and support from our subscribers," said Jerry Offsay, Showtime's president of programming, in a statement. "It clearly has people talking and has generated quite a buzz in both gay and mainstream outlets. The series debut rating was the highest for any Showtime prime-time series premiere in three years. It attracts a broad audience, particularly young adults 18-34. Additionally, its Sunday premieres and Tuesday replays significantly outperform their respective time period norms."
