We’re pleased to share a great new web series with TheBacklot readers. It’s called Montreal Boy: Some Strings Attached, and it will have you wanting to brush up on your French— or at least brushing up against a sexy French Canadian.
Created by Logo and producer Jimmy Lee in partnership with Tourisme Montréal, the six-part series takes place over a weekend in the life of Montreal native Stéphane, (actor Francis Ducharme). He’s a handsome young architect with a bright career and a rich social life, although he hasn’t quite gotten over his ex, Matt (Nico Racicot). But things are looking up. He’s met a sexy New Yorker named Hugh (Matthew Ludwinski) online and Hugh is coming to Montreal for an unexpected weekend visit.
You might recognize Ludwinski as the star of Going Down in La-La Land. The adorable French Canadian Ducharme may be less well known to TheBacklot readers, but trust us, he’s definitely worth googling!
One of the aims of this project is to promote travel to Montreal, and it’s true the gorgeous city figures prominently in the web series. But we don’t think that gets in the way of a beautifully shot, intimate story of two gay men tentatively negotiating the beginning of a relationship. Check out the first two episodes below. We’ll be posting additional installments of Montreal Boy: Some Strings Attached each Monday afternoon for the next several weeks.
