NBCUniversal is putting together a lineup of programming for its upcoming streaming service, and the company is moving two upcoming series to the service: Bravo’s “Queer as Folk” and E!’s “One of Us Is Lying.”

The Hollywood Reporter’s Live Feed reports that the streaming service, which has yet to get a name, is on track to bow in 2020.

“‘Queer as Folk’ — a reboot based on the British LGBTQ-focused series — remains in development, while ‘One of Us Is Lying’ is progressing beyond that stage and has now been picked up to pilot,” THR reports. Both shows are produced by NBCU’s Universal Content Productions.

“Both projects were originally developed under Bonnie Hammer when she had oversight of NBCUniversal cable networks that included Bravo and E!, among others,” THR notes. “In January, Hammer, in a major sign of confidence, was given oversight of NBC’s streaming service.”

“One of Us Is Lying” was originally developed for E! in September 2017.

“UCP landed rights to author Karen M. McManus’ book of the same name following a bidding war,” THR notes. “Erica Saleh (‘Instinct’) is penning the script for the pilot.”
