A new television show titled Le Coeur Decouvert (Open Heart) represents Quebec's first series to feature a gay relationship, CBC News reported Wednesday. The series, written by French-Canadian playwright Michel Tremblay, will feature a pair of men involved in a long-term relationship and how they deal with everyday issues such as raising children and coping with careers. Though the series will not focus on sexuality, the pair's relationship will play a prominent role in the story line.
Tremblay first pitched the idea in 1989 but says the producers refused to give the show a green light. "[Producers] were afraid probably that the public wasn't ready," he said. "It's never the public who are afraid; it's them. It's the people with money. They don't want to lose their money."
