'Pose' gets new UK trailer as BBC Two reveals premiere date - WATCH

The wait is almost over.

2019-03-06

After what's seemed like an eternity, Ryan Murphy's Golden Globe-nominated queer drama Pose finally has a UK premiere date - and you don't have long to wait.

The acclaimed eight-part series about the underground world of 1980s ball culture, set at the height of the AIDS epidemic, will premiere on Thursday 21 March at 9pm on BBC Two, nine months after it first debuted Stateside on FX.

After initially generating headlines for boasting the largest cast of transgender actors to be starring as series regulars in a scripted show, Pose's impeccable cinematography and performances soon established it as one of the stand-out TV dramas of 2018.

The show, which stars trans actresses Mj Rodriguez and Dominique Jackson as well as American Horror Story stalwarts Evan Peters and Billy Porter, has already been picked up for a second season, which is expected to air later this year in the US.

In the Attitude Body Issue - available to download and to order globally now - we catch up with stars Billy Porter, Dominique Jackson and co-creator Steven Canals to get the inside scoop on what viewers can expectwhen Pose werks its way onto screens.

'Pose' will premiere on Thursday 21 March at 9pm on BBC Two. Read our interview with the cast in the Attitude Body Issue, out now.
