Fans who have waiting a few months to find out what happened to our new favorite messed-up on-screen couple, Thom and Cal of EastSiders wont have to wait much longer, when the series returns this coming Tuesday in it’ new online home LogoTV.com!  That means soap fans can see more of ATWT favorite Van Hansis and EastSiders creator, Kit Williamson in the leading roles!  But in addition, to this talented duo, EastSiders has announced some very intriguing and fun guest stars who will be woven into the fabric of the story in their latest press release below!

Official EastSiders Press Release: LogoTV.com announced last week that it had secured the rights to the highly-anticipated web series EastSiders, the dark comedy about a gay couple struggling through the aftermath of infidelity in greater Los Angeles. Written and directed by award-winning playwright Kit Williamson, EastSiders is comprised of nine episodes, with the first three premiering April 23rd  at 4PMESTon LogoTV.com and new episodes posting each Tuesday at 4 PM ET.

When Cal (Kit Williamson) finds out Thom (Van Hansis) has been cheating on him with Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon), their relationship is turned upside down. Cal’s best friend Kathy (Constance Wu) is always there for him with a bottle of whiskey in her purse, but she has her own problems with her nice guy boyfriend Ian (John Halbach), even if they’re all in her head. Will the lies tear them apart or are they just stubborn enough to stay together forever?  Drunken outbursts and double standards abound in this dark comedy about the sad and funny messes we make out of our lives.

Gay Icon Traci Lords (“Cry Baby,” “Zack and Miri Make a Porno,” “Devil May Call”) guest stars in episode 4 as Cal’s outspoken mother Val. Out gay actor Sean Maher (“Firefly,” “The Playboy Club,” and the upcoming Joss Wheedon adaptation of “Much Ado About Nothing,”) has a recurring role as Paul, a handsome gallery owner. Brea Grant (“Heroes,” “Dexter”) guest stars in episode 5 as the show’s first lesbian character, Jeremy’s sister Bri. Stephen Guarino, whose other work includes three seasons of Logo’s “The Big Gay Sketch Show,” returns as the eccentric party promoter Quincy. He can most recently be seen playing the role of Derrick in “Happy Endings” on ABC and will appear as on the new NBC series “The Gates.” David Blue (“Stargate Universe,” “Ugly Betty”) guest stars in episode 6 as David, a love interest for Quincy.

EastSiders is written and directed by Kit Williamson and produced by Chrissy Dodson, John Halbach, Kristyne Elizabeth Fetsic, Jonathan Stahl, Jaz Moore and Beth Wheatley.
