Adam & Yves a.k.a. Adam and Yves was a proposed American television series that was going to be based on the 1978 film La Cage aux Folles. Producer Danny Arnold was a fan of La Cage and in 1979 pitched a series featuring a male couple with a masculine/feminine dynamic similar to the one in the film. ABC Entertainment president Anthony Thomopolous gave him the green-light. Arnold brought in Chris Hayward to co-produce. The title was a play both on the Biblical Adam and Eve and to a popular anti-gay slogan, "God made Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve". Adam and Yves would have been the first television series with gay protagonists. Arnold worked on the idea for several months but quickly ran into problems. He was unable to come up with a sustainable premise that did not rely on stereotypes or repetition. He had difficulty locating suitable writers. He also knew from the controversy that had surrounded the development of the series Soap with its gay character Jodie Dallas that the subject matter would attract a lot of media attention and he did not have sufficient staff to handle such a controversy. Work on Adam and Yves stopped in 1980.
