Emmy winner Sean Hayes wraps up the latest season of Will and Grace this week, but he has another LGBTQ project in the works.
Hayes is teaming up with Netflix to create Q-Force, a 10-episode series "about a handsome secret agent and his team of fellow LGBTQ super spies."
"Constantly underestimated by their colleagues, the members of Q-Force have to prove themselves time and again as they embark on extraordinary professional (and personal) adventures."
Parks and Recreation creator Mike Schur, and Brooklyn Nine-Nine writer Gabe Liedman are also on board.
Liedman will write and show-run the entire series. Schur, Hayes, Todd Milliner, and David Miner will executive produce. Hayes is likely to voice the lead character as well.
Milliner told Deadline:
"A spy TV series is so tough, because they're so expensive. We were thinking how do we get to do gay spy and every week, and the only way to do that is animated, because we can do all of the fun parts of a James Bond film. We can travel, we can have big chase sequences; animation is allowing us that freedom."
"Also, I don't know that the studios would greenlight a feature with a leading character that's gay in that genre. Hopefully they will, but that doesn't seem like right now."
The show would join other LGBTQ-friendly content on the streaming service, including Big Mouth and Super Drags––and people are already excited.
