No, this isn't a biblical tale about a hairy dude who collects animals while God wipes out the human race. This is about a television show called Noah's Arc, which had two seasons on the Logo television network. Centering on a collection of gay African-American men, the show dealt with social issues like same-sex marriage and parenthood, HIV awareness, sexual curiosity, etc. My favorite thing -- Wikipedia says that it's been cited as a version of Sex and the City, Queer as Folk, and -- wait for it -- The Golden Girls. How the last one fits in -- well, that's beyond me, but it's enough to make me want to see the show. (Anyone know!?)

After two seasons and a cliff-hanger finale, The Hollywood Reporter has posted that Logo has greenlit a feature film based on the series, called Noah's Arc: Jumping the Broom. The film will pick up where the cliffhanger left off, and was written by series creator and director Patrik-Ian Polk and John R. Gordon. According to the show's MySpace blog, which is only viewable to friends, location scouting has begun in Canada, it will be released in late 2008 or early 2009, and could lead to more sequels and maybe television specials. THR, meanwhile, says production will begin next month.
