At its core, “Q-Force” is about a team of LQBTQ+ spies trying to prove their worth to the American Intelligence Agency. According to Deadline, the plot centers around Agent Mary who is a top-performing member of the AIA, but is relegated to the obscure West Hollywood branch when he comes out as gay. There, he assembles his elite team and solves a case before the AIA accepts them as secret agents. However, they have to include the straight Agent Buck in their group and prove themselves as worthwhile members of the organization.
Netflix dropped a trailer that teases what the show will be like, including shots of what looks like a Pride parade followed by classic spy things like car chases, climbing walls, and lots of fighting. Ultimately, the animated series is a comedy, so it includes cheeky moments such as a villain saying, “You can’t pander to the gays. They can smell it. You’re acting like Citibank at Pride.”
Whether or not “Q-Force” reveals itself as a poor attempt at pandering or a solid new LGBTQ+ series remains to be seen on September 2.
