In the world of gay-themed web series, reaching Season 3 makes you a genuine veteran, especially if you’re not the type of show that a couple of people can make in their living room. Old Dogs & New Tricks has now reached the Season 3 milestone and released the first episode, which you can watch below, and as an added treat there’s a cameo from Mo Gaffney (Absolutely Fabulous).
Picking up two weeks after the events of ODNT’s mini-movie/Halloween special “WeHo Horror Story,” the comedy continues the stories of four middle-aged, gay best friends living in youth-obsessed West Hollywood. The principal cast of Leon Acord, Curt Bonnem, Jeffrey Patrick Olson & David Pevsner return for another season of fun, friendship and healthy doses of sex. Amanda Gari also returns as audience favorite Lydia Lasker in an expanded role.
“I couldn’t be prouder of the show this season,” comments series creator/writer/star Leon Acord. “The cast and crew really brought their ‘A game’ and the show looks amazing.”
In the premiere, we learn Nathan, devastated by Damian’s departure, has taken to his bed—until the guys arrive to deliver some tough love. Muscles tries to flirt with a gym bunny. Brad receives bad financial news from his accountant. And Ross meets with his divorce lawyer, played by guest star Gaffney.
In the rest of Season 3 it’s promised there will be a sex-tape scandal, a “chubby chaser,” a gay divorce, a surprising new partnership, a new villainess, a professional comeback for one of the characters and a financial crisis for another, and new love interests all around, as well as Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.
Seven more episodes are due to be released, coming each Wednesday over the next few weeks. [Read more...]
