Canadian LGBTQ+ network OUTtv has commissioned two unscripted series, including one that follows men who enter Canada’s first-ever drag class.
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.
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.
