Ryan Murphy’s Pose finally arrives on UK screens this March, and BBC Two has released a trailer giving us a new look at what’s about to hit our living rooms.
The groundbreaking US series about the underground world of 1980s ball culture is set at the height of the AIDS epidemic, examining New York’s LGBTQ community during the growing crisis.
The series features the largest cast of transgender series regular actors as well as the highest numbers of LGBTQ recurring actors and crew for a scripted show in television history – and, if you wanted another reason to watch, it’s already been renewed for a second season, so FX is confident in what it has on its hands.
The show follows flack transgender woman Blanca Rodriguez, who works at a nail salon by day and serves as a member of the House of Abundance by night. After receiving a life-changing medical diagnosis, Blanca becomes determined to open her own house. She starts by taking in 17 year-old Damon, a talented dancer.
The seres arrives on the BBC as part of a new deal between the Beeb and FX, which expands their existing relationship. They co-produce Tom Hardy, Ridley Scott and Steven Knight’s critically-acclaimed BBC One drama Taboo and BBC Two has previously shown The People vs O.J. Simpson abd The Assassination of Gianni Versace, as well as Feud, Atlanta, and Trust.
The deal marks the first time FX shows have a primary home in the UK, with the BBC now owning the rights to all new scripted (comedy and drama) FX series, including UK produced Devs, from acclaimed UK writer and producer Alex Garland and What We Do in the Shadows.
Pose premieres at 9pm on Thursday 21st March on BBC Two, with new episodes airing weekly. Here’s the trailer:
