Here TV, the nation’s largest LGBTQ premium television network, and Pride Media, the nation’s largest premium LGBTQ publisher, launched their original series, Falling For Angels, on December 1. The series takes a provocative and informative look at same-sex relationships from love and sex positivity to sexual health, heartbreak and more.
Six episodes, six relationships in six very distinct and specific LA neighborhoods.
Inspired by six distinct neighborhoods in Los Angeles, including Boyle Heights, Koreatown, Leimert Park, Bel Air, Silver Lake and Malibu, the anthology series features an all-star cast including Steve Grand (Country Singer), Daniel Franzese (Looking/Mean Girls), Alec Mapa (Devious Maids), Kevin Spirtas (Days of Our Lives), Blake Young-Fountain (The Skinny), Johnny Kostrey (Aquarius), Calpernia Addams (Soldier’s Girl), Adrian Nunez (30 Days with my Brother), Jason London (Dazed and Confused) and more.
“Falling for Angels celebrates the magic that makes Los Angeles the city of angels.” says Award-winning Producer Paul Colichman (Gods and Monsters/Shelter). “Here TV has engaged inspiring and diverse queer writers and directors, most of whom are queer men of color, to tell their stories. Each episode features a romance apropos to a specific Los Angeles neighborhood. Falling For Angels highlights the emotions and complex relationships that bind the queer community together.”
Producing alongside Colichman is Emmy-nominated actor-producer, David Millbern.
Each installment of the six-episode anthology series is helmed by a different writer/director, including Nick Oceano (Boyle Heights), Steven Liang and Steven J. Kung (Koreatown), Waymon Boone (Leimert Park), David Millbern (Bel Air), Billy Clift (Silver Lake).
