Ellen Page joins the cast of Netflix’s Tales of the City reboot as well as the Tegan and Sara Foundation

Netflix has given a series order for a revival of cult '90s LGBT-themed show "Tales of the City," now titled, »Armistead Maupin’s Tales of the City«. Set in present-day, the 10-episode limited series will see Laura Linney, Olympia Dukakis and Barbara Garrick reprise their original roles from the three previous Tales mini-series with some exciting new additions. Most notably in the form of Canadian actress Ellen Page, who plays Linney's character's estranged daughter Shawna.

Tales of the City

According to first reports, the plot is loosely based on "Mary Ann in Autumn," the eighth novel in the book saga, and follows Mary Ann (Linney), who returns home to San Francisco and is reunited with her daughter (Page) and ex-husband Brian, twenty years after leaving them behind to pursue her career. Fleeing the midlife crisis that her picture-perfect Connecticut life created, Mary Ann returns home to her chosen family and will quickly be drawn back into the orbit of Anna Madrigal (Dukakis) and the residents of 28 Barbary Lane.

"The magical, vivid world that [author] Armistead Maupin built in Tales of the City is one that offered so many — particularly the LGBTQ+ community — a home for the first time. For many, Tales was the first time they saw themselves on screen," said writer and showrunner Lauren Morelli ("Orange is The New Black"). "I am humbled to now find my own home within Tales and to continue telling Armistead’s stories."

Commenting on the announcement, Maupin added: "I couldn’t be more excited about this new brand-new incarnation of Tales. It’s set in present-day San Francisco with all the joys and complications that might suggest for the residents of 28 Barbary Lane. Mrs. Madrigal’s tenants, both old and new, will be entangled in delicious new adventures and ever-expanding possibilities for love."

Production is expected to begin later this year for a 2019 debut. Be sure to add the show to your Netflix watch list so you don’t miss the first episode!

Meanwhile, Ellen also joined the Board of Directors at the Tegan and Sara Foundation to fight for health, economic justice and representation for LGBTQ girls and women. The actress made the following announcement on Instagram past Friday:

"Tegan and Sara have stood as a beacon of hope for LGBTQ+ individuals since the start of their careers more than twenty years ago. Their music and their message have inspired and empowered thousands around the world, myself included. They are trailblazers in our community, speaking out on behalf of those who feel they will never be heard. Their platform is a reminder to us all that even in our most isolating struggles, we are not alone. It is a true privilege to be working alongside them & the other incredible women on this board. With the Tegan and Sara Foundation, we can continue to elevate the voices of women & non-binary in the LGBTQ+ & work to transform our global community into one of inclusivity."

As explained on its website, the organization's mission is "founded on a commitment to feminism and racial, social and gender justice." They work in partnership and solidarity with other organizations fighting for LGBTQ and women’s rights, raising funds and awareness as well as tackling the inequality that prevents people affected from reaching their full potential.
