Inspired by the books of Armistead Maupin, the new Netflix limited series 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 hits Netflix just in time for Pride Month, on June 7th. It will world premiere the first episode at the 62nd San Francisco International Film Festival on April 10th.
