New Gay Drama Series: DTLA

The multi-talented Darryl Stephens (from "Noah's Arc") and producer Larry Kennar are bring us a new series. It's called, "DTLA," known as DownTown Los Angeles. It's covers lives of seven friends living basically two miles from me. Here's is some more info.
DTLA is a self-financed, gay scripted drama series, best described as a cross between "Queer As Folk" and "Swingers." Six 30 minute episodes have been produced, and we are seeking funds to complete post-production and a few pick-ups on the series in order to deliver it to OutTV for an April 2012 premiere. 

DTLA depicts the relationships of seven friends with varied ethnic, cultural, and sexual orientations who work and live in the vibrant community of Downtown Los Angeles. It's a story of love, friendship, loyalty, and being true to oneself - no matter what the cost.  It is the first dramatic series with gay leads since "Queer as Folk," "Noah's Arc," and "The L Word."  

Our eyes into this world are Lenny (Darryl Stephens of "Noah's Arc") and Bryan (newcomer Matthew Stephen Herrick), a long term couple who can no longer escape some fundamental truths about their relationship. As they begin to deal with end of their relationship - their lives, and the lives of their friends will be forever altered.
