Today we have a feature post for the TV series, ‘Steam Room Stories’ and some great news on a new film from Cinema 175.
Divine recently featured Nicholas Downs, writer and producer of the Steam Room Stories, together with J C Calciano.
Steam Room Stories began on YouTube in 2010. Each webisode features a two-minute comedy sketch starring hot men in a steam room. Today, Steam Room Stories is a profit generating YouTube channel with over 27.7 million views and over 65,100 subscribers. The series reached a milestone with its 100th episode in 2013.
As part of that interview , Nicholas answered this question:
Q: You’re a writer and producer for the TV series Steam Room Stories which features…well, features gents in a steam room in various stages of undress. We’re actually doing a promotion on this series soon for the magazine with Pip Ellwood. What bought about this series; what was your aim in getting this series on air for people to enjoy?
Nicholas: I do the series with JC Calciano (Is It Just Me?, eCupid, The 10 Year Plan). After we finished Is It Just Me? and become good friends from that experience we wanted to continue to work together in any way we could. I came on as a producer for this film, eCupid, and about the same time we came up with the idea for Steam Room Stories. We thought how can we reach as many eyeballs as possible to push our films and other projects. We came up with a simple and sexy web series idea and thought this will be fun and a good way to advertise the films. Now it’s taken on a life of its own. We now shoot at YouTube studios, have almost 28 million episode views and over 56,000 subscribers. We have a great group of guys we work with and although it has a sexy vibe the core of our series is a comedy.
It looks like a fabulous series and from what I’ve watched so far, it’s funny, sexy and a lot of fun. All the links are at the end of the post
