Logo picks up the popular dark comedy web series starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson.
Yesterday we posted a bogus announcement that parent company Logo would be producing another series in its A-List franchise. A-List Amish Country. Commenter beforelautner appreciated the April Fool’s joke, but wondered aloud why LOGO wasn’t producing more worthy gay interest projects. As an example he mentioned Eastsiders, the online web series starring Van Hansis and Kit Williamson.
Oh beforelautner, how prescient you are! Logo today announces they have picked up Eastsiders and will be producing more episodes! The show will launch on LogoTV (and right here on AfterElton/TheBacklot) with the first three episodes on April 23rd!
Here’s a preview…
Have to say, we’re pretty psyched about this. The dark comedy follows the travails of a young gay couple living in the East LA neighborhood of Silver Lake. Van Hansis plays one half of that couple and has been a particular favorite with our readers (and staff) from his days on As the World Turns playing Luke Snyder.
We’ll have more information and hopefully interviews with the cast in the coming weeks.
