With TV still having a tough time producing (and sustaining) decent gay-themed entertainment, a lot of the most interesting work is going on in the world of the internet with web series. Now there’s a new one on the block – or at least the makers hope there will be – called Alphabet Boys.
The show has launched an IndieGoGo campaign to raise a rather hefty $140,000 to complete Season 1. The pilot is already in the can, with scripts for seven more 15-minute episodes ready to go, with those behind the show hoping to shoot in June and July.
Alphabet Boys is described as ‘a bold and fresh comedic web-series revolving around four guys navigating the struggles of life in the Big Apple: Love, friendship and finding the ever-elusive Mr. Right. The show takes place in Alphabet City, where Dante, Blake and Ross suddenly find themselves with a new house-guest when Stefano shows up at their door. Three gay men under one roof is dramatic enough, but add a straight one with extra baggage to the mix and you have Season One of Alphabet Boys!
‘This season brings fun filled shenanigans during excursions through the city, pool parties, broadway shows, bad dates and personal drama between the boys. With complementary, yet completely opposite personalities, there’s never a dull moment with these four!’
Amos Wolff, Adam Perry, Chad Ackerman, and Joey Sorge are set to play the leads.
