What happens after the world ends? Written and directed by award winning playwright Kit Williamson, "EastSiders" explores the aftermath of infidelity on a gay couple in Silverlake. When Cal (Kit Williamson) finds out Thom (Van Hansis) has been cheating on him with Jeremy (Matthew McKelligon), their relationship is turned upside down. Will the lies tear them apart or are they just stubborn enough to stay together forever? Drunken outbursts and double standards abound in this dark comedy about the sad and funny messes we make out of our lives. Cal's best friend Kathy (Constance Wu) is always there for him with a bottle of whiskey in her purse, but she has her own problems with her nice guy boyfriend Ian (John Halbach), even if they're all in her head. Stephen Guarino guest stars as a party promoter throwing one last bash before the apocalypse. Written by Kit Williamson

Did You Know?


Constance Wu's character was slowly removed from the series after her large involvement with the first season. This was due to ABC not allowing her to return to the show in a large capacity while she was under contract for her role in a sitcom on the station. In 2019 after the final season had premiered, Kit Williamson stated he had actually written alternative episodes for each season after the first with more involvement from Constance but ABC would not allow her to.

I started watching the series online a few years ago. Very cool that Netflix picked it up.

The series is a look into the young gay scene in LA. The primary couple has a complicated relationship--open (as is somewhat common in the gay community). The plot stays pretty honest about that--it's not easy to maneuver through the strong emotions involved when bringing other sexual partners into a relationship.

There's a great subplot as well--a drag queen falls in love and plans her wedding. She's got a hard shell, but evolves into a lovable character you hope will live happily ever after.

As a gay man in LA, it was particularly fun looking for familiar settings.

I wish Kit Williamson and John Halbach continued success in their endeavors!
