Grindr is officially throwing its hat into the content streaming ring.
Lead by The Other Two star Jimmy Fowlie, the popular gay dating app is launching its first original comedy series this April, and the official trailer just dropped!
Directed by Julian Buchan and written by Frank Spiro and John Onieal (who also created the series), Bridesman will be six episodes long and will also feature other actors like Sydnee Washington, Shannon DeVido, Crystal Porter-Bazemore, Megan Chelsea Johnson, David Mudge, Calvin Seabrooks, and Benito Skinner.
"We're thrilled to partner with John on Grindr's first foray into long-form content," Alex Black, Grindr's Director of Marketing, said in a statement last year when the show was first announced. "Bridesman is tailor-made for the Grindr community—it's smart, queer, campy, and features sharp commentary on gay dating, heteronormative standards, and Grindr itself. We are so proud to be showcasing some of the finest talent in the queer community as we continue to find new and creative ways to connect our users."
According to an official description, Bridesman follows a "gay and awful" man named Terry (Fowlie) as he is "forced to fulfill bridesmaid duties for his best friend despite his disdain for the construct of marriage and an electric sexual connection with the groom."
"The series is an irreverent, fast-paced satire of modern wedding culture and the 'old fashioned trend' of monogamy," the description continues. "Follow Terry and an unhinged ensemble cast of bridesmaids, detectives, a secret agent, and a demon from hell as the bridal party barely survives the wedding's hallmark events, from the sexy bridal boudoir photoshoot to the bachelorette party."
Watch the trailer for Bridesman in the video below! Bridesman premieres in-app on Grindr on Friday, April 1, with two episodes debuting day over the weekend. All six episodes will then be available to stream on YouTube on April 4.
