10 Brilliant Short-Running TV Shows That Proved Less Is More
10. The Outs
"Sometimes if you want something and you cant find it then you have to make it," Adam Goldman told HuffPost Gay Voices. Goldman is the writer, director and main actor on his own hit series The Outs, that is based and shot in Brooklyn, NY. "I wanted a character-driven comedy with heart about gay men". The show follows lovable-gay Mitchell (Goldman), his aspiring-writer best friend Oona (real-life writing partner and roommate Sasha Winters) and the man with whom they both maintain a contentious relationship, Mitchells ex-boyfriend-turned-slut Jack (Hunter Canning). The show starts six months after the breakup, and centers around the way Mitchell, Jack and Oona deal with its aftermath. This show is the odd man out in this countdown. This seven-episode dramatic Web series is funded entirely by successful Kickstarter campaigns and out-of-pocket expenses from the 27-year-old Bard College graduate and the creative team he assembled. But dont let the Web part fool you. "We're just trying to stretch the definition of what a Web series can be, so we're trying to shoot it as a TV show that happens to be online." Goldman told MTV news. And theyre doing a very good job. The show has a surprisingly high production value and a very well-written dialogue. Young city living comes to life, with a very small budget, but with a big heart.
