The gay-themed web series Hunting Season gained many fans with its first season of saucy antics, inducing many people to pay for uncensored episodes that took the blurs away from some of the show’s on-screen naughty bits.
While US network Logo sponsored that first season, they’ve stepped away from making more and so the makers have turned to Kickstarter, hoping to raise $150,000 to make more episodes. As always there’s a range of rewards on offer, ranging from free uncensored downloads to on-screen thank-you credits.
The first season followed Alex, a single gay 20-something in Manhattan, a smart and successful blogger at Gawker by day, who turns the spotlight on himself and his friends and starts anonymously writing about his social life. However, ‘Alex will face challenges in Season 2 that make him question his true goals, and test him in ways he didn’t expect. Tommy, TJ, and the whole cast of characters will grow and change and the show will go deeper into their relationships and their lives. Season 1 was just the beginning — wait til you see what we’ve got in store for you next!
‘Jon Marcus, the creator of the show, paid for Season One out of his own savings, and then he borrowed the money to finish to show. We sold enough downloads to pay back the loans, but he can’t pay for any more of the series himself.’
$150,000 is enough to get eight more episodes made and pay everyone for their time, so if you want to help, head over to Kickstarter. The fundraising campaign closes on December 6th. Take a look at the first episode of the first season below and go to the Hunting Season website for more.
