QUEER SUPERHEROES

Animated Gay-Spy Comedy “Q-Force” With Sean Hayes & Wanda Sykes 

Gary Cole, David Harbour, Patti Harrison, Laurie Metcalf, Matt Rogers, Wanda Sykes and creator/executive producer Gabe Liedman will join Sean Hayes in the voice cast of Q-Force, Netflix’s new animated gay-spy comedy, reports Deadline.

Q-Force centers on Steve Maryweather, aka Agent Mary (Hayes), was once the Golden Boy of the American Intelligence Agency—until he came out as gay. Unable to fire him, the agency sent him off to West Hollywood to disappear into obscurity. Instead, he assembled a misfit squad of LGBTQ+ geniuses—expert mechanic Deb (Sykes), master of drag and disguise Twink (Rogers) and hacker Stat (Harrison)—and together, they’re Q-Force.

The trailer was released last month to mixed reactions—some twitter users weren’t terribly enthused with how much Q-Force seems to lean into stereotypes to find their sense of humor.

Judge for yourself—the 10-episode series will premiere September 2.
