Well, it’s right there in the headline: Showtime’s upcoming drama series American Gigolo has abs and Rosie O’Donnell—what more could a gay possibly want in their television programming?For better and for worse, we’re in the golden age of mining classic films and other old IP for new content.

And, yes, all of these remakes and revivals can be a bit tiresome, but, my goodness, we think the premium cable network might be onto something here!Based on Paul Schraeder’s 1980 film of the same name, American Gigolo stars Jon Bernthal as Julian Kaye, a Los Angeles escort to some high-class ladies.

When he’s framed for the murder of one of his clients, Kaye is sent to prison—only to be released 15 years later for the wrongful conviction.

The series picks up there, as the titular gigolo attempts to re-acclimate to the modern-day sex industry and find out the truth about who set him up all those years ago.Related: Rosie O’Donnell’s 6 most memorable film roles rankedShowtime’s first smart move was casting Jon Bernthal as Kaye, a role originated by Richard Gere.
