From the wickedly delicious mind of Kit Williamson, creator and star of the Emmy-winning queer comedy series EASTSIDERS on Netflix, comes this darkly funny new series. Williamson again stars, along with Aubrey Peeples (NASHVILLE), as queer siblings Noah and Margot Guillory whose lives in the Palm Springs Desert community are challenged by a series of mitigating factors. Floating around in the pool, Noah kvetches about his marriage-phobic partner Daniel while Margot is unsure about her anticipated pregnancy with Eliza, her better half (thanks to donor dads Noah and Daniel). But trouble’s brewing right below the surface of their desert paradise. Noah’s got one last chance to finish graduate school—a fact his tart professor (played by Kathy Griffin) is quick to remind him of. Meanwhile, Margot’s off her meds and hasn’t a clue that Eliza is having second thoughts about the pregnancy. The complications add up for this unconventional duo and their wider circle of chosen family in these first three episodes of what promises to be Williamson’s most audacious, sexy, and wildly entertaining effort yet. The cast also includes James Bland, Briana Venskus, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson, Constantine Rousouli, Willam Belli, and Jenna Ushkowitz.
A Q&A session featuring director/writer/actor Kit Williamson, actor Aubrey Peeples will follow the screening.
