Netflix has released a teaser trailer, some first look images and, most importantly, a release date for their upcoming series “Tales of the City”. The 10-episode series is based on the books by Armistead Maupin and will arrive on June 7th. The Netflix series follows on from the 90’s show that aired 25 years ago and will see Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis reprise their roles from the original series; Ellen Page has also joined the cast.
Based on the books by Armistead Maupin, this next chapter – Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City – follows Mary Ann (Laura Linney), who returns home to San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter (Ellen Page) and ex-husband Brian, twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann returns home to her chosen family and will quickly be drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Olympia Dukakis) and the residents of 28 Barbary Lane.
