Gay TV Now: Scott Thompson of The Kids in the Hall

Among gay TV icons, The Kids in the Hall’s Scott Thompson remains a pioneering force. Long before gay and lesbian portrayals became de rigeur on television, Thompson led the way—whether due to his status as an openly gay man, or to his often hilarious portrayals both of women and men.

After a 15-year hiatus from the airwaves, The Kids in the Hall are back with Death Comes to Town, an eight-episode series premiering on IFC August 20.

Thompson recently sat down with Mediaweek’s Alan Frutkin to talk about the new series.
