    “‘Mid-Century Modern’ stars Nathan Lane as Bunny Schneiderman, Matt Bomer as Jerry Frank, and Linda Lavin as Sybil Schneiderman, Bunny’s mother. A successful businessman with one foot in retirement, Bunny is forever in search of love, but he first has to be convinced he’s worthy of it. Like her son, Sybil’s strengths are her weaknesses: wise, caring, and iconoclastic – which sometimes means she’s critical, smothering and amoral. Jerry left the Mormon Church and his marriage in his early 20s after his wife informed him and the rest of the congregation that he was a homosexual. Now a latter-day saint in the literal sense of the term, Jerry is pure of heart. He is also hard of body and soft of head. ”

    This new series is a significant step forward in LGBTQ+ representation on television, continuing the legacy of shows like “Will & Grace” and “Queer as Folk.” With Lane and Bomer at the helm, the it promises to be both a hilarious and heartfelt addition to the TV landscape. Fans can hardly wait to see these two powerhouses bring their magic to the small screen once again.
