MTV The Real World's Danny Roberts and Noah's Arc's Darryl Stephens Get Steamy in Shots from New Untitled TV Series: PHOTOS


Towleroad has obtained some exclusive stills from an as-yet-untitled new gay scripted series created by Larry Kennar, Executive Producer of The L Word, about a group of friends in downtown L.A. 

According to our tipster, it steers clear of cookie-cutter WeHo clones and thrusts us deep into the gritty world of hipsters and urban professionals.  The show is scripted but shot cinema-verité style, is still untitled, and keeps it raw and in your face " with dark humor and explicit humanity." Further details are being kept quiet as a certain network is negotiating the rights to air the series.

Filming began Monday.

Following are some stills of Darryl Stephens (Noah's Arc),one of the stars in the ensemble cast, getting steamy and intimate with a character played by Danny Roberts (The Real World: New Orleans). 

Check them out (possibly not sfw), AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. I can't believe y'all found so much to complain about from a few photos and a bare bones description. LOL Bless.
    Love Darryl. It will be great to see him on screen again.
    We need MORE gay series. I don't care where they are or who produces them.

    The more the better. The only way visibility works is if there is so much variety that we can all pick and choose.
    No one series can be everything to everybody or represent everyone's experience.

    The concept sounds perfectly fine to me.

    Let's wait and see the execution before we rip it to shreds just on GP.

    There is still NOT a representative number of gay dramas and sitcoms on tv across all networks.

    If we don't support these shows and give them a chance to gain an audience, who will?

    The assumption that any new gay movie of tv show is going to be "stereotypical" and bad is just internalized homophobia poking its ugly head out of the self-hating cave.

    Perhaps we could just let the show actually get shot before we shoot it down.

    Just a thought.

  2. Darryl Stephens is sexy ass hell, it only stands to reason that the show is going to be hot n sexy too. He is a very good actor. This is going to be a very good show, I can feel it! I just hope it plays on a foreal network.

  3. Danny was my first man crush, and apparently it's still going strong. I actually really don't like seeing him in this light. It cheapens him. Also, why is he kissing that man in the shower and not in our marriage bed?

  4. Nothing beats "Dante's Cove" starring Ms. Tracy Scoggins!

  5. Not to hate or anything, but it always surprises me when men on this site get all giddy over shots like this - like a bunch of teenage girls. Don't you guys have access to porn?

  6. I do not like finding out about these shows too soon, because they have a good chance of not being made!
    I was looking forward to "The Miracle Year" that was supposed to be on HBO but it was not commissioned beyond a pilot episode.

    A show about gay men that stars openly gay men, one of which is black, would already be a step in the right direction and hopefully they have the right kind of people writing it, so it will be more on the realistic side!

    I am curious as to what being a "normal" gay is, because every time a show includes a gay character, there are always people complaining about the realism.

  7. I believe the bitterness is not as pervasive as it seems on the Comments section of this site. Just a few bitter guys who on Towleroad 24/7 and like to be the "First Responders" to every post.

    It's a shame because they set a bitter tone that is not Andy's and not that of most of Andy's readers.

  8. JEFFNYC at AUG 3, 2011 3:20:48 PM: you comments are right on! Queens complain all the time and it simply reflects on their own unhappiness, insecurities and negativity.

    I think it's GREAT that this TV series is being made. I love the fact that they avoid West Hollywood and focus on the downtown area of Los Angeles that does have lots of hipsters. And gays, too! Thank goodness someone out there is writing material that is not the same old same. I wish them the best in getting signed!

  9. always thought Darryl was sexy-even when he was acting like a big queen on Noahs Arc!!

  10. Danny & Daryl - YES, PLEASE!!!! I'm glad to see them both back on TV as I was super bummed when Noah's Arc went off the air. Danny, well he was TOTALLY my crush back in college when I used to watch The Real World.

  11. Mary with the hairy chest looks hot but the ubangi looks like a fug body.

  12. OK. I didn't get the memo. Why is "hipster" the word of the week?

  13. Darryl Stephens comment about his claim to fame potrayal in Noah's Arc was a bit offensive. He described Noah's as a group of African American men existing in a "chocolate bubble"-and by extension was making a slur against all other portrayals of African American gay men in film whose love life and frindships where with other African American gay men.

    Is it right to assume he has no problem with larger gay film where 99% of the actors are white--a vanilla bubble.

    Not a fan of Darryl Stephens.

    If he wants to play, ALWAYS PLAY, opposite white men, then all the power to him. But he needs to stop making disparaging remarks against black gay film which is by the way his claim to fame.

  14. JEFFINNYC and SUGARRHILL Thanks for saying it. You saved me the trouble of taking some of these whiny, ungrateful, "normal"-obsessed buttboys to task here.
