Davies.

The show is called Adult Behavior, Deadline reports:

Considered a spiritual successor to Davis’ influential Queer as Folk, Banana, which aired on Channel 4, and companion anthology series Cucumber on E4 and online documentary series Tofu, revolve around various characters across the LGBT spectrum.
