We brought you the trailer in March, but now the pilot for new web series "Other Men" has finally arrived. And it makes a strong impression.
Written by Ben Ladouceur, the first episode finds Jerry (Nathan Carroll) reflecting on the events of his first year in Toronto, having moved from a small town to pursue an English degree. He's seen refusing a phone call from Hank (G. Kyle Shields), a playwright who, we find out, took Jerry under his wing and became his boyfriend. In just fifteen minutes, things go from pleasant romanticism to biting betrayal.
It is hard to say just yet how the plot will develop. Will the entire series take place within one year, or will we see Jerry move on from his reflection? One thing is for sure: there's little of the sassy wit or stereotypical gay humor we've become accustomed to in many web series on display here. It is a refreshing and dramatic twist on the genre.
