The creators of “Queer Eye” are turning their lens on the world of underwater performers for a new docu-series on Netflix, “MerPeople.” “From putting on dazzling small-town shows in Florida to the crowning of the King and Queen of the Seas in the Bahamas, this series will take you on a journey of passion and perseverance,” Netflix writes.
Episode one introduces viewers to characters like “The Mertailor,” a mermaid tail maker who aspires to start a mermaid aquarium and training center; former mermaids from the iconic Weeki Wachee Springs State Park; and Chè Monique, founder of the Society of Fat Mermaids.
