8:30 PM ET
From the creative mind of actor-director-writer Adam Goldman (and thanks to crowd-funding from a Kickstarter campaign), comes one of the Internet’s most welcome original series, The Outs. Focusing on a pair of exes who are cautiously navigating the difficult and not always fulfilling world of dating and occasional random hook-ups, the series has garnered a devout following for its droll look at contemporary gay life among Brooklyn-based twentysomethings who aren’t quite as hip to the ways of the world as they’d like to be. Joining Goldman in the search for romantic bliss are his writing partner, Sasha Winters, as his often caustically outspoken best friend Oona, and Hunter Canning, as his one-time partner Jack, whom he finds it not so easy to break away from. Interview Magazine declared, “The most accurate and essentially human portrayal of young gay men today can be found on the Net, not the networks.”
As an added attraction, the evening will include the debut of an episode of Goldman’s newest series, Whatever this is., which he created with director of photography Jay Gillespie. Asking the universal question, “How long are you expected to do work that you hate, for pennies, until it becomes something that you love that pays the rent?,” Whatever this is. follows three struggling roommates—two production assistants and a teacher—as they seek employment or bounce from one low or unpaid gig to the next. Along with Canning, the other stars of the show, Dylan Marron and Madeline Wise, will be on hand.
