New Gay Series PEOPLE YOU KNOW Launches Season One; Watch First Episode!
Orchard Winfield Productions (OW Productions) launched their new series People You Know on June 29. The first two episodes are available on the series website (www.peopleyouknowtheseries.com) through the Vimeo On Demand service. The first episode will be free (for the first two weeks) with the second (and subsequent) episodes available for $2.99. For those who "binge watch" series (like we do), the initial episodes of season one will be available for $15.99. The remainder of the episodes will be released throughout the summer along with bonus content such as interviews, gag reels and more.
People You Know tackles the story of having it all in the most iconic, demanding and cutthroat city in the world, New York City. People you Know is a provocative series where the seven Deadly Sins corrupt a group of thirty-something urbanites, threatening their chance for happiness and love, as they strive to achieve their dreams while surviving the drama. At every turn, these friends get pushed to the limit and run the risk of losing all they hold dear. Joining the inner circle of friends are Pandora Boxx, of RuPaul's Drag Race and Steve Hayes from Trick and Big Gay Musical.
"This is more than a show about people behaving badly. It's a story about how we all want to do the right thing, but sometimes our base desires get in the way." Co-Creator Baltimore Russell says. "Each of these characters make choices that will affect their lives in very dramatic ways."
"Our hope is that the audience joins us on this ride and that they find a little bit of themselves in the characters." Co-Creator John Dylan DeLaTorre says. "We created this show to explore what it's like for a close group of friends to maintain their relationships in the face of some incredible odds, where sometimes your best friend is your worst enemy."
OW Productions will resume production of the final 7 episodes of season one in early fall. People you Know is available for streaming and for purchase now through the series website with various VOD platforms to be announced.

The plots center on sex, love, betrayal, and greed, any of which can lead to a character's undoing. Far more than just a soap, the series challenges stereotypes and breaks new ground.
