Few gay themed web series have seen the success of Eastsiders. Indeed, it’s difficult to really call it a web series, as while it started on Youtube, it’s since made its way to TV and DVD, got pulled together into a film, had a very successful second season, and scored a couple of Daytime Emmy nominations. And now it’s coming back for a third season.
The trailer for that third instalment has now arrived. In the new season, familiar faces such as Kit Williamson and Van Hansis will be joined this time around by the likes of COnstance Wu, Willam Belli, Stephen Guarino, Colby Keller and WIlson Cruz.
Here’s the synopsis: ‘Season 2 of the Daytime Emmy nominated series “EastSiders,” (Outstanding Digital Daytime Drama Series) left Cal (Kit Williamson) and Thom (Van Hansis, Daytime Emmy nominee for Outstanding Performance by an Actor in a Digital Daytime Drama Series) determined to make things work, despite some confusing developments in their newly monogomish relationship.
‘After a challenging year in New York City, the guys hit the road back wet to Los Angeles to pick up the pieces of their old life, but nothing can prepare them for the unexpected twists and turns they’ll face on the journey home. As they travel west, their tumultuous relationship is tested by an empty bank account, arguments about the future and an encounter with a handsome drifter that tempts them to once again redraw the map of their relationship. Will this be the trip of their lives, or the end of the road?’
“It’s been a whirlwind year shooting the new season of EastSiders on location in 16 states, and we’re beyond excited to share six new episodes with everyone this November,” Williamson comments (via EW), “It’s also been incredible to take the show on the road and meet so many fans at festivals across the country, and we are thrilled to bring an exclusive preview screening of the first episode to NewFest in New York this Saturday.”
The first episode screens as part of New York’s Newfest on October 21st, with everyone else getting to see it when it’s released on various digital platforms (iTunes, Google Play etc.) and DVD from October 28th. Take a look at the trailer below. [Read more…]
