Apple is making an LGBTQ docuseries for Apple TV+. Aptly named Visible: Out on Television, it’s set to be a five-part series debuting February 14.
Visible: Out on Television will be seeing Ryan White and Jessica Hargrave as its executive producers, likely thanks to their work on the crime-related docuseries, The Keepers. Other notable faces behind the project include Wilson Cruz and Wanda Sykes.
The series is aiming to share the importance of TV and how the LGBTQ+ community helped shape it. The project is going to opt into using archival interviews and never-before-seen interviews. Some of its said interviews will include the likes of Oprah Winfrey, Ellen DeGeneres, Anderson Cooper, Billy Porter, Don Lemon, Rachel Maddow, Neil Patrick Harris, Tyler Jesse Ferguson, among others. To narrate, they got Ready Player One‘s Lena Waithe.
Each episode of the docuseries will tackle topics including homophobia, the growth of LGBTQ+ characters, and opening up about sexuality in the TV industry.
The interest in the Visible follows HBO Max‘s own LGBTQ docuseries announcement back in October. This series, titled Equal, is being done by both Greg Berlanti and Jim Parsons. HBO Max’s series’ goal is to remind people of the “forgotten heroes of the LBGTQ movement.”
Visible: Out on Television will be launching on February 14, 2020, with all parts available on Apple TV+.
