Dekkoo's new throuple/triad/three-way-relationship drama The Third is debuting today. Keep reading for the enticing trailer ...

Creator Matthew Lynn says of the series:

The Third is a show about surrogate families and the unexpected but deeply meaningful connections we make that enrich our lives. Today, many people live in “non-traditional” relationships; deep down, we are all looking for somewhere to belong. My primary goal with this show is to bring these surrogate families to light. For me this has been a complete labor of love, as they say: art imitates life, which imitates art. When I was twenty-three I came out to my family and they said, “Leave and never come back.” Soon after, a gay couple took me in and became my surrogate family; eventually, we entered into a triad relationship which initially inspired the show. These people taught me how to be a gay man and live in this new world I had discovered. My experiences in this relationship provided the initial inspiration for The Third.

As a gay creator, I want to portray gay relationships without any sensationalism or exoticism. At the same time, I didn’t want to shy away from or be ashamed of what it means to be gay in today’s world. This show is my love letter to our community and to Palm Springs, a gay mecca.

All of this culminated in telling a story that is not only very real to me, but to many others as well. At my production company Bridge the Divide Media our mission is telling stories on the fringe of society and I wanted to show a gay relationship in a way that’s never been shown before. Something that didn’t feel like it was gay first, but human first. But also not shying away from it or being ashamed by it. Many people are now in “non-traditional” relationships and this show is about bringing light to them and their unique stories. All of us are looking for somewhere to belong.
