Official EastSiders Press Release: LogoTV.com announced last week that it had secured the rights to the highly-anticipated web series EastSiders, the dark comedy about a gay couple struggling through the aftermath of infidelity in greater Los Angeles.

When Cal (Kit Williamson) finds out Thom (Van Hansis) has been cheating on him with Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon), their relationship is turned upside down. Cal’s best friend Kathy (Constance Wu) is always there for him with a bottle of whiskey in her purse, but she has her own problems with her nice guy boyfriend Ian (John Halbach), even if they’re all in her head.
