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—for Angels highlights the emotions and complex relationships that bind the queer community together.” Producing alongside Colichman is Emmy-nominated actor-producer David Millbern.

The series premieres with “Chapter 1, Boyle Heights,” and will be available to stream on Here.tv. The Here TV App is available for download on the Apple App Store, Google Play, Roku and Amazon App Store, Here TV’s cable providers and FallingForAngels.com.
