Eastsiders Season 2 was written and directed by actor, writer and director Kit Williamson (Mad Men), who also stars in the film as Cal, an ambitious young photographer who navigates the complex world of modern gay life with his boyfriend, Thom, played by Van Hansis (As The World Turns).
The pilot episode of EastSiders made its debut on YouTube in December of 2013 to critical acclaim and viral success. The full series was subsequently picked up for distribution by the LGBT cable channel Logo.
The complete 9 episode first season premiered on their online platform LogoTV.com and received numerous accolades, including the title of Best Web Drama at the LA Weekly Awards, Best Ensemble from the Indie Series Awards and a Satellite Award nomination from the International Press Academy.
In 2014 the series was broadcast as a feature film on Logo’s cable channel and acquired for DVD and VOD distribution by Wolfe Video, North America’s oldest and largest LGBT distributor.
Demanding more of the show, EastSiders fans donated more than $153,000 to a Kickstarter campaign to help create a second season of 6 half-hour episodes that has been acquired for a September 15, 2015 release on Vimeo On Demand and on Wolfe On Demand. Wolfe Video releases the series on DVD beginning November 3.
