This cute, San Francisco-shot web series, Paper Boys, written and created by Curtis Casella and Kyle Cabral (who also plays the lead character, Cole) may be short on sex so far in its first two episodes, but it still looks like it could be worth a watch.
Cole has just moved to San Francisco from New York to get a job in animation, and so far has been unlucky in the opening of the show. But he’s staying with his handsome, straight best friend from high school, Daren (Nathan Brown), who’s now engaged to Rebecca, even though it sounds like maybe he doesn’t want to be.
Also, Daren takes off his shirt a lot and roams around the house in sweatshorts, and there seems to be sexual tension there, the two guys sitting on an air mattress together a lot.
There are just the two episodes for now, but there’s a Kickstarter to help fund the next few, and the team promises they “are going to be funny, exciting and poignant.”
Also, Cole meets a love interest by the end of Episode 2, and that’s Max. If nothing else, Paper Boys will at least be giving some representation to an unrepresented minority in indie cinema: the Gaysian romantic lead.
