Adam Goldman, the director, star, and writer of web series The Outs, spoke with MTV recently about the challanges of launching a successful show through a non-traditional medium and filling the need for gay-centered television and media. "I think that we've seen from the moment we started the project is a desire for it, and there's an audience for it," the creator told the news outlet.
With the series, Goldman is trying to change the way that people look at watching shows online. "We're just trying to stretch the definition of what a web series can be, so we're shooting it as a TV show that happens to be online," said the director. The show, which centers on exes Jack and Mitchell and their romps through the city, has started to catch on in recent weeks, with Goldman surpassing his latest Kickstarter goal within 48 hours of posting it.
Goldman's primary goal in doing the series? To create a quality webseries that, coincidentally, is about gay men. "We just want to prove that there's space in media for stories like this, that aren't about four gay men and the gay bar that they go to, the gay times that they have, the gay sex that they have," he said. "It's a story about people who happen to be gay."
