Russell T Davies is coming back to UK TV with two new drama series "exploring 21st century gay life".
15 years after making his name with Queer As Folk, Davies is returning to Manchester's gay community.
Queer As Folk launched the careers of Aidan Gillan and Charlie Hunnam.
I once read about a scientific institute which had studied the male erection. It divided the hard-on into four categories, from soft to hard. One, tofu; two, banana; three, peeled banana and four, cucumber. Right there and then I knew I had my drama. And it's a joy to be back with Channel 4 and RED, to tell these stories.
No-one can look into the heart and soul of modern relationships quite like Russell and across Channel 4, E4 and online, he paints an unflinching and forensic portrait of how our sex lives affect us all. It might be 15 years since Queer As Folk, but he has made it more than worth the wait.
The opportunity to work with Russell again is completely thrilling and the chance to make a drama for Channel 4 that once again takes such a glorious, funny and perceptive look at this world is incredibly exciting. We want to make this a huge, impactful production and are looking forward to starting
