Netflix is developing a revival of Armistead Maupin’s San Francisco set TALES OF THE CITY with original cast members Laura Linney and Olympia Dudakis attached to star.

The new version would take on the LGBT-themed series, set 25 years later, and possibly would be shot in San Francisco. The first of nine book in Maupin’s series, TALES OF THE CITY explores alternative lifestyles and underground culture in San Francisco in the 1970s.

In addition, Maupin is set to return as executive producer.

This would be the fourth version to air on the small screen. The first three books of the series have all been adapted into TV mini-series starring Dudakis and Linney. The first aired in 1993 on PBS in the US, and the last two on Showtime in 1998 and 2001.
