Sean Hayes Is Bringing A LGBTQ Spy Cartoon To Netflix

The streamer has given a 10-episode series order to Q-Force…
 
Netflix has ordered a new show called Q-Force, a half-hour adult animated comedy that centers around LGBTQ+ superheroes.
 
The streaming service has given the project (from uberproducer Mike Schur and actor-producer Sean Hayes) a 10-episode order, with the official description saying it focuses on “a handsome secret agent and his team of fellow LGBTQ superspies” who are “constantly underestimated by their colleagues” and must “prove themselves times and again as they embark on extraordinary professional (and personal) adventures.” The short version of that is that Q-Force is about a team of LGBTQ spies, with the leader being a gay James Bond-type.
 
Q-Force will be written by Gabe Liedman of Broad City and PEN15. Rumour has it that Hayes will voice the lead character, but Netflix declined to confirm.
 
Hayes and co-producer Todd Milliner had apparently been mulling the idea for a series about a gay spy for a long time.
 
“A spy TV series is so tough, because they’re so expensive,” Milliner said. “We were thinking how do we get to do gay spy and every week, and the only way to do that is animated, because we can do all of the fun parts of a James Bond film. We can travel, we can have big chase sequences; animation is allowing us that freedom.”
 
Said Hayes, “Also, I don’t know that the studios would greenlight a feature with a leading character that’s gay in that genre. Hopefully they will, but that doesn’t seem like right now.”
 
No word on when Q-Force will hit Netflix. Stay tuned…
