Logo's web series Eastsiders starring ATWT Van Hansis starts a second kickstarter for season 2!



A dark comedy about a gay couple trying to stay together through drunken outbursts, double standards and dirty deeds!

Season one of "EastSiders: The Series" left Cal and Thom uncertain of their future together. All the lies were out in the open and they were splitting up the Christmas ornaments, but they couldn’t deny their feelings for each other. Is being in love enough of a reason to be together?



“EastSiders” launched last year to a lot of love from fans and critics alike, with Entertainment Weekly calling the show “funny and heartbreaking” and After Elton praising it as “sharp, well-written and acted.” We won Best Web Drama at the 2013 LA Weekly Awards, Best Ensemble at the Indie Series Awards and were nominated for a Satellite Award from the International Press Academy, among numerous other accolades, but the most rewarding part has been getting to interact with the fans of the show. If it wasn't for the support of amazing people like you we wouldn’t have been able to make "EastSiders" in the first place.

The entire cast is excited to return for a second season: Van Hansis (Three time Daytime Emmy Nominations for As the World Turns), series creator Kit Williamson (Mad Men), Matthew McKelligon (Int. Leather Bar, You’re Killing Me), John Halbach (Wallflowers) and Constance Wu (Browsers, Sound of My Voice), as well as our amazing guest stars Sean Maher (Firefly), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings), Brea Grant (Heroes, Dexter) and Traci Lords (Cry Baby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno).



We’ll also be offering backers an exclusive first look at some of the amazing things we have planned for season two, including an introduction to our new cast members Satya Bhabha (New Girl, Scott Pilgrim vs. the World), Adam Bucci (10 Year Plan), Vera Miao (Best Friends Forever) and Willam Belli (Nip/Tuck, Rupaul's Drag Race).

Is this better than DTLA? My friend recommended it, but it was terrible.
laurondo 15th-Apr-2014 12:23 am (UTC)
I think it is. I didn't care much for DTLA, either, so!

a dead squirrel is better than dtla

hunting season is the best gay show i've seen recently.
it has it's flaws, but overall it's pretty accurate and actually funny and enjoyable.
