A lot of news has dropped in the recent weeks regarding Disney’s new streaming service, Disney+. From Marvel to Star Wars series. The studio is also gearing up for original series as well and we have the intel on one of those new series.
We have learned the studio is gearing up for a comedy series tentatively titled Four Dads.
The series will follow Ethan and Sebastian who divorce each other and then separately remarry other partners, they must learn to parent their budding teenage daughters while avoiding the pitfalls of their two very different families.
We can also share with you that the studio has interest in American Horror Story star, Cheyenne Jackson for the lead role of Sebastian.
The series written and produced by Rick Weiner and Kenny Schwartz (Modern Family, American Dad). Production on the 30 minute series is expected to begin this Spring, in Los Angeles. With a series debut with the launch of Disney+ sometime this Fall. The series is said to be inspired by Schwartz’s life.
This will mark the first project under the Disney banner to openly use married gay characters in lead roles of any kind. Disney Channel recently added its first openly gay character on the popular show Andi Mack. Rumors are also swirling that Elsa could also be Disney’s first openly gay animated character in The upcoming Frozen sequel, that has yet to be confirmed by the studio.
It is really great to see a studio like Disney slowly start to give representation to the LGBTQ community. There is obviously a long way to go but Disney is making the proper steps.
