Q fea­ture: EASTSIDERS RE­TURNS

EMMY NOM­I­NATED SE­RIES EASTSIDERS RE­TURNS FOR THIRD SEASON The Great American Road Trip Is About To Get a Whole Lot Gayer

Q Magazine - - News -

Kit Wil­liamson's two-time Emmy-nom­i­nated LGBT se­ries, EASTSIDERS, re­turns for a six-episode third season this month. Ex­ec­u­tive pro­duced by Wil­liamson and his hus­band John Hal­bach, and made pos­si­ble via a Kick­starter cam­paign that raised over $80,000 from fans, the third season of EASTSIDERS picks up on Cal and Thom who, de­spite some con­fus­ing de­vel­op­ments in their newly mono­gom-ish re­la­tion­ship, are de­ter­mined to make things work.

Af­ter a chal­leng­ing year in New York City, the guys hit the road back west to Los An­ge­les to pick up the pieces of their old life, how­ever, noth­ing can pre­pare them for the un­ex­pected twists and turns they'll face on the jour­ney home. As they travel west, their tu­mul­tuous re­la­tion­ship is tested by an empty bank ac­count, ar­gu­ments about the fu­ture, and an en­counter with a handsome drifter that tempts them to once again re­draw the map of their re­la­tion­ship. Will this be the trip of their lives, or the end of the road for Cal and Thom?

Shot on lo­ca­tion in New York, New Jer­sey, Penn­syl­va­nia, Ohio, In­di­ana, Illi­nois, Min­nesota, Wis­con­sin, Iowa, South Dakota, Wy­oming, Mon­tana, Idaho, Ore­gon, Ne­vada and Cal­i­for­nia, season three of EASTSIDERS stars Kit Wil­liamson as Cal and four-time Emmy Nom­i­nee Van Han­sis (As the World Turns) as Thom. It also fea­tures guest star ap­pear­ances by Constance Wu (ABC's Fresh Off The Boat), Stephen Guar­ino (I'm Dy­ing Up Here), Wilson Cruz (Star Trek Discovery), Brianna Brown (The CW's up­com­ing se­ries Dynasty), Matt McKel­ligon (You're Killing Me), Colby Keller (High Main­te­nance), Wil­lam Belli (Rupaul's Drag Race) and so­cial me­dia su­per­star Max Emer­son.

“It's a dif­fi­cult time to be LGBT in Amer­ica right now, and I wanted to stick a rain­bow flag in the tra­di­tion of the Great American Road Trip,” says Wil­liamson. “LGBT peo­ple have the same claim to the beau­ti­ful sights of this coun­try as every­one else. By shoot­ing with a skele­ton crew we were able to take the char­ac­ters out of their com­fort zone in a way that few tele­vi­sion shows have been able to.”

The first two sea­sons of EASTSIDERS are avail­able world­wide on Net­flix, where they have been trans­lated into a dozen lan­guages. They are also avail­able on DVD and dig­i­tal plat­forms through Wolfe Video. EASTSIDERS Season 3 is avail­able world­wide now on WolfeOnDe­mand.com and Vimeo, as well as through var­i­ous stream­ing ser­vices in­clud­ing Ama­zon Video, Google Play and iTunes.
