BRAVO CELEBRATES 'QUEER EYE: THE FINAL SEASON' WITH 10 ALL-NEW EPISODES IN SUMMER 2007
This Not-To-Be-Missed Fifth Season Is A Heartfelt Goodbye to Unibrows, Nose Hairs, Pleather, And The Fabulous Fab Five
PASADENA, Calif. � January 12, 2006 � Bravo spotlights the summer of 2007 with the final season of one of TV's most groundbreaking reality series, the Emmy Award-winning "Queer Eye," which concludes its four-year run with 10 all-new episodes. "Queer Eye: The Final Season" is all heart as the Fab Five's Ted Allen, Kyan Douglas, Thom Filicia, Carson Kressley and Jai Rodriguez continue their mission to "make-better" their subjects - ranging from a warring artsy family, to a monster truck-loving clutter bug, to a divorced dad biker dude, among others. The announcement was made today by Frances Berwick, Executive Vice President, Programming & Production, Bravo
"The unforgettable Fab Five have taken Bravo and viewers worldwide for an eye and mind-opening ride since they made their fabulous debut," said Berwick. "We proudly watched as viewers embraced the series that really helped open the closet doors on gays and their presence on television and in popular culture."
Since the Fab Five first "came out" to the world for the series premiere on July 15, 2003, straight guys everywhere knew they had finally found their "Queer Eye." Watch what happens this summer as grooming guru Kyan continues to advocate "manscaping," an effort to tame or remove unruly body hair. Don't miss fashion maven Carson as he "tzuj's" his way to perfection, while food and wine expert Ted advises an appropriate food and wine pairing. In true "Queer Eye" spirit, culture vulture Jai infuses self-confidence in those who need it most, as interior designer Thom magically turns a drab room fab.
"Queer Eye: The Final Season" is a tribute to the Fab Five as well as the many lives they have touched over the years. In a not-to-be-missed special final episode, you'll be sure to laugh, shed a tear, a few pounds and maybe some unwanted facial hair.
"Queer Eye" is produced by Scout Productions. The executive producers are David Collins, David Metzler and Michael Williams for Scout, and the co-executive producer is Linda Lea. The series was created by Collins, a gay man, and developed by Metzler, a straight man - a union of sensibilities that gives the show its depth, humor and edge.
