Anchoring OUTtv’s new programming slate is Border2Border Entertainment’s 5 x 30-minute docuseries Drag Heals, which follows men who have always wanted to perform drag as they enter into Canada’s first-ever drag class. These queens tackle personal issues like gender identity, mental illness, heartbreak and feminism to better understand themselves and their queer experience in an otherwise straight world.

Drag Heals is directed by Charlie David and Nico Stagias. The series is produced by Charlie David with Philip Webb and Brad Danks as executive producers. The series will premiere this fall.

Finally, Dr. Barry (6 x 30 minutes) from Arcadia Content is a docuseries that follows out veterinarian Dr. Barry MacEachern as he deals with the challenges that come along with opening his own clinic. Dr. Barry is produced by David Perlmutter and will air spring 2019.

In other news, OUTtv has ordered a fourth season of Mom vs. Matchmaker from Go Button Media, a second season of Never Apart from Never Apart TV, and a new season of Popcorn from Border2Border Entertainment.
