‘Noah’s Arc’ is back!
The groundbreaking series bulldozed boundaries during its original run, airing – for the first time – a take on the Black LGBTQ experience that had never been seen.
Now, in salute of its 15th anniversary, the cast are regrouping for a special.
Full story below…
The virtual reunion was announced moments ago and will reunite the core cast for the first time since the end of the show’s two season run on Logo in 2007.
Confirmed names for the special, which is named ‘Noah’s Arc: The ‘Rona Chronicles,’ are: Darryl Stephens, Jensen Atwood, Rodney Chester, Doug Spearman and Christian Vincent.
The scripted episode is being jointly presented by Patrik-Ian Polk Entertainment and Gilead, with GLAAD and Impulse DC as sponsors. Viewers will be encouraged to donate to various Black LGBTQ causes rendering important services in their communities.
A live Q&A hosted by Karamo Brown will follow.
Speaking on the episode, Polk said in a statement:
“Not a day goes by that I don’t get messages, tweets, DMs and emails from the huge Noah’s Arc fanbase saying how much they love & miss the show and begging for a reboot. While we’ve all struggled to stay sane during these stressful and trying times, the cast and I wanted to do something special to show our appreciation for all the love we continue to receive from the fans.”
Suffice to say, many will no doubt be be tuning to re-engage with the much-loved Los Angeles based friend circle, who they last saw on TV movie ‘Noah’s Arc: Jumping the Broom.’ An effort that earned a GLAAD Media Award.
