NEW YORK, NY – New York City-based writer/director/producer Adam Goldman has unleashed a new Web-based series that he hopes will do for the Twenty-Tens what “Queer as Folk” did for the first half of the “Aughts.” The six-episode Web series tells the story about a gay man and his circle of friends, as they explore all facets of their lives and relationships, including their jobs, their families, and their sexual experiences.
The comedy uses Goldman’s own familiar Big Apple haunts as a backdrop for the series, which he described to the Huffington Post as “a story about big relationships, the ones that really define people, and what happens when they fall apart, and how that can change someone.” The series is financed through Kickstarter, a crowd-funding Web site for creative projects that has funded a diverse spectrum of media, including indie films, music, comics, journalistic endeavors, video games, and food-related projects.
Goldman, whose production shoots on location in the Five Boroughs, says he wants to tell stories that are relatable to him and his friends. “I wanted a character-driven comedy with heart about gay men,” he told the Huffington Post. “I love [the gay characters] Mitch and Cam on ‘Modern Family,’ but those aren’t my people. I don’t live in California and I don’t have a baby.”
