HomeTVEastSidersLogoTV.com Picks Up ‘EastSiders’, Gay Comedy Starring Van Hansis Jamey Giddens April 3, 2013 EastSiders, Logo 11 Comments We may never know if Luke and Noah made it to happily ever after on As The World Turns, but Van Hansis' latest same-sex project has been shown some major love! LogoTV.com has picked up the rights to EastSiders, a dramedy starring Hansis, which explores how infidelity impacts a young gay couple. From the synopsis: 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? Sounds soapy! The first three episodes of the popular series will air on Logo's website on April 23. EastSiders is the brainchild of playwright Kit Williamson. Watch a preview below! 11 Responses nysam April 3, 2013 What’s Logo? Hasn’t this web series already been playing online for over a year now? Log in to Reply Jon April 3, 2013 I hope it somehow gets to Logo TV! There’s only so much RuPaul’s Drag Race and 1 Girl/5 Gays one can take, fabulous though they are! Log in to Reply days4ever April 3, 2013 WOW, this is awesome. Not that it matters but is Van Hansis gay in real life? He is super cute and I didn’t know he was doing another gay role in this format. I hope it is true that Logo has picked it up. And to answer NYSAM, Logo is the gay network that has RuPaul’s Drag Race on it and other shows and gay movies.

Good for them because they were doing a benefit a few months back to raise money to the show.

Although, I’m sure they’re no longer available there now that Logo has the rights to them. Log in to Reply pbghgirl April 4, 2013 Eastsiders premiered on the YouTube in December and the first two episodes aired. Then, they did a kick-starter campaign (which was really successful) to make the money to give us 7 more episodes. They just finished filming them in March. It’s a really really great show. It might be a little different for people who are used to daytime soaps. Van’s role is A LOT different than what people who were fans of Luke might be used to. But still, give it a try. It’s fantastic! Kit Williamson’s writing is simply brilliant. It’s honest and real with an edge of dark humor. He’s also an amazing actor. Definitely on par with Van. I am really excited that Logo has picked it up! Log in to Reply TraceyAbbot101 April 4, 2013 I love, love, love LOGO!!! First time I saw Marco Dapper was in a movie on this network. Love Rupaul and Drag Race ( the tea, the shade!! ) Log in to Reply nysam April 4, 2013 Yes, Van is gay. Log in to Reply SoapyBitch April 4, 2013 How very All My Hipsters. Someone on here mentioned it and I hope it happens: getting Van to play Lucas on GH. With Marcy, okay Emme, Rylan coming over now I just need Tom Pelphrey and then I can watch all the CBS actors I never got a chance to watch. Log in to Reply Yoryla April 4, 2013 Oh, Van would be great as Lucas on GH! Log in to Reply brettyboy April 4, 2013 Excellent news, I enjoyed the episodes on you tube and am hungry for more!
