Red Production Co’s innovative new drama series is headlining Channel 4′s Autumn/Winter schedule.
Cucumber, Banana and Tofu are 3 companion series running on Channel 4, E4 and online. Written by Russell T Davies, they’ll be broadcast 15 years after he broke the mould with Queer as Folk.
Exploring the “passions and pitfalls” of 21st century gay life, Cucumber is set in Manchester and stars Vincent Franklin (The Thick of It, Twenty Twelve) and Cyril Nri (The Bill) as couple Henry and Lance, whose comfortable, settled life is shattered after the most disastrous date night in history.
Tofu is being made by prolific YouTuber Benjamin Cook.
Transmission dates have yet to be set.
