From a press release:
History follows Jamie (Jack Tracy), a thirty-something gay New York lawyer, in the days after a messy breakup with his partner of five years, Jared (Andrew Lipson, pictured). Through juxtaposed flashbacks, the audience watches Jamie’s evolution—or lack thereof—on issues of intimacy, sex, gender role conformity and friendships as he rebuilds his life on his own terms.
The series shot this summer, and made use of some familiar gay hangouts, including Therapy, landmark gay bar Julius, and Crossfit Hell's Kitchen (which you just know will be a landmark in 40 years).
The cast includes William Cohen, Jacob Seidman, Trent Stone, Robert Maitner, Andrew Lipson, Bianca Lyn, Carissa Fales, Pierre Coker; Andrew Holder, Aidan Kinney, Robert Lima, Mike Longo, Miguel Lopez, Scott Mandel, Anna Bella Michelino, Cameron Moir, Misha Osherovich, Chad Peterson, John Pigate and Kevin Stevens.
Tracy, who is executive producer, director, writer and lead actor, based the series on his personal experiences. It was produced by Necessary Outlet Productions, whose goal is “to assemble trained, talented, motivated and multi-disciplined artists to contribute to large-scale projects. Artists involved with Necessary Outlet typically volunteer their time in exchange for experience, relationship-building, skill honing and resume material.”
So basically, this is totally fresh, totally original, totally gay material—now go totally support it.
