First-Look At Netflix’s New Queer Show ‘Glamorous’ Starring Kim Cattrall

Just in time for Pride!

Netflix has released the first look at their new LGBTQ+ series Glamorous starring the one and only Kim Cattrall along with a fabulous cast of queer folks and drag queens.

The show follows a gender-nonconforming intern, Marco Mejia (played by Ben J. Pierce/Miss Benny), who snags a job at one of the world’s largest cosmetics brands. How did he land this job? He bashed the cosmetics brand on his Youtube channel. Cattrall plays Madolyn Addison, “CEO, entrepreneur and founder of Glamorous Cosmetics and former supermodel” who “built one of the top cosmetic companies in the world from the ground up.” However, the business isn’t just slowing down – it’s crashing and burning. Almost like there is a saboteur in the company trying to take it down. Madolyn tells Marco it’s his job to find out what’s going on in the company, “what they’re hiding and what they’re stealing.” Marco searches for who is taking down the company all while he’s trying to find himself. Before sending him off on his mission, Madolyn warns him: “This business isn’t all glitter and glamor and neither is life.”

The show was originally piloted on The CW before being canceled in 2019, but Netflix snatched it up and breathed new life into it. Just look at these stunning first-look visuals:

The colors. The outfits. The lighting. So gorgeous!!!

Two recurring queer female characters have already been confirmed. Jade Peyton will play Venetia, Madolyn’s assistant who shows Marco the ropes and acts as a guide to Brooklyn queer nightlife. Ayesha Harris, who played Jade on The L Word: Generation Q, will play Britt, a graphic designer at Glamorous whose secret crush on a coworker is secretly requited. Eek! We love lesbian drama!

It has been confirmed that the first season of Glamorous will have 10 episodes, all about 45 minutes long, and is expected to launch in June 2023. Just in time for Pride!
