EastSiders, the critically-acclaimed dark comedy starring series creator Kit Williamson (Mad Men) and three time Emmy Nominee Van Hansis(As the World Turns) as a gay couple trying to stay together in the aftermath of infidelity, returns today for its second season exclusively on Vimeo On Demand (https://vimeo.com/ondemand/eastsidersseason2/136875634).
The second season of EastSiders is being called funnier than the first, but also tackles some very dark topics, from heartbreak to infidelity to STDS. This season Cal and Thom’s relationship heat up as they explore opening things up sexually and complications of dating an ex are explored.
The large ensemble cast includes Constance Wu (playing a character very different from her role as the conservative mother on ABC’s Fresh Off the Boat), Matthew McKelligon (You’re Killing Me), John Halbach (Wallflowers), and Stephen Guarino (Derek on Happy Endings), all returning in their starring roles. Joining them for season two are Willam Belli (RuPaul’s Drag Race), Brianna Brown (Devious Maids), Brea Grant (Heroes) and Vera Miao (State of Affairs).
The season boasts a number of incredible guest stars, including Traci Lords, Lennon Parham (from USA’s Playing House), Sean Maher (Firefly), Jai Rodriguez (Kingdom), David Blue (Stargate Universe), Leith Burke (The Haves and the Have Nots), Matthew Wilkas (Gayby), Satya Bhabha (New Girl), Manila Luzon (RuPaul’s Drag Race) and Drew Droege, from the viral hit Chloe videos.
Since its debut, the show has leapt across several different viewing platforms, appearing first on YouTube, then LogoTV.com, a subsidiary of Viacom. The feature film version of the series aired on Logo’s cable network, and was then distributed on DVD and digital platforms through Wolfe Video. Today, September 15, the second season of EastSiders will premiere on Vimeo On Demand. Wolfe will release the series on DVD and across additional digital platforms beginning November 3.
EastSiders explores the drunken outbursts and double standards of twenty-somethings living and loving in Silverlake, CA. The series has won several awards including Best Web Drama from LA Weekly Web Awards and the Indie Series Award for Best Ensemble. It received a Satellite Award nomination from the International Press Academy.
