We have a feeling John Cameron Mitchell is also thrilled by this casting news. In fact, earlier this month, he told E! News that he couldn’t wait to meet the actors “playing my 18 boyfriends.”

As for how the new series will differ from the Netflix hit? According to the Shrill actor, Joe Exotic, which is a working title, will have a very different tone.

“I love what they’re going to be doing with the story,” he said at the time. “It’s going to be much more deeply felt, heartfelt than the docuseries, which is more sensational.”
