Ok, this has got to be the funniest thing I have seen in a long time and so apropos!  Who else but a gaggle of daytime soap veterans can make this commentary on a dying soap opera so irreverant and side-splitting funny? No one.  From creators, Scott Bryce ( Ex-Craig, ATWT) and Michael O’Leary (Ex-Rick, GL) Steamboat is their new web soap spoof that is just what the doctor ordered in soaps ailing times. The  duo are touting the series as a mix of The Office and All My Children in the desperate but dying days of a daytime soap opera.

Filled with some of your favorites from GL including Kim Zimmer, Justin Deas, Kurt McKinney, Orlagh Cassidy and Beth Chamberlin, and ATWT’s Michael Park, you must watch the video teaser below. We won’t spoilt the surprise who each of these soap vets plays in the parody!  Enjoy!

EastSiders Season 3 Starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson Kickstarter Campaign Underway!

EastSiders is on its way back for season three, which is great news since the LGBT series starring former As the World Turns star Van Hasis (Ex-Luke) as Thom and creator/writer/producer Kit Williamson as Cal.

Over the last few seasons, the funny, poignant, and extremely well-written series tells the tale of a couple who go through the struggles of their relationship while living in Silver Lake, California.

With many twist and turns and featuring a supporting cast that includes: Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat)Brianna Brown (General Hospital, Devious Maids, the upcoming Dynasty), Stephen Guarino (Happy Endings, I’m Dying Up Here), Willam Beli (RuPaul’s Drag Race, Nip/Tuck) Traci Lords (Crybaby, Zach and Miri Make a Porno), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), Jonathan Lisecki (Gayby) and John Halbach (Producer, EastSiders), the series third season looks to be one of its most intriguing yet.

This time Thom and Cal (Hansis and Williamson) end up on the great American road trip after moving from L.A. to the Big Apple and then trying to get back home! The journey home to Silver Lake was shot on-location in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, Oregon, Nevada and  California over 35 days last fall.

The production has now launched their Kicktstarter campaign to finish up the series and is hoping for some funding for additional shoot days, and post-production costs. The campaign is set to run until June 6th, by which time the producers must have attained their goal of $60,000, or if you contribute and they have not met their goal, it is refunded. (more…)
