Web Series Worth Watching: Old Dogs & New Tricks Debuts on July 30
Web Series of the Week: Old Dogs & New Tricks
Now here is a refreshing new web series about gay men over 40. Old Dogs & New Tricks, which will premiere its pilot episode on July 30, explores the friendship and tribulations of four diverse and successful West Hollywood men, who have all reached that certain age defined as "middle": Talent agent Nathan (Leon Acord); Brad (Curt Bonnem), a one-hit wonder from the late '80s; Muscles (Jeffrey Patrick Olson), a hunky personal trainer; and Ross (David Pevsner), a former TV star. How these guys react (or overreact) and adjust (or not) to getting older will be the focus of the series, which sounds like it could be a lot of fun.
Below is a brief teaser as well as the original teaser, which stars Jim J. Bullock (TV's Too Close for Comfort) as Ross (he was unable to appear in the pilot due to a scheduling conflict).
