Learning Curve

Charismatic spark plug FRANCO STEVENS turns 21 years old in 1990, and having just discovered she’s a lesbian, divorces her husband to explore queer life in San Francisco. She conceives a groundbreaking magazine, DENEUVE, that connects her new community and goes on to become the best-selling lesbian magazine ever published.

LEARNING CURVE is an episodic that revolves around Franco Stevens and her crew as they launch and grow Deneuve magazine in San Francisco through the 1990s, when putting the word lesbian on the cover was unimaginable. Franco is a modern-day Robin Hood: a heroic force of nature who will gamble, steal, and stretch the truth to make her vision of a connected and accepted lesbian community a reality.
