Web Series of the Week: EastSiders
Created by award-winning playwright Kit Williamson, the new dark comedy, EastSiders, explores the aftermath of infidelity on a gay couple, Cal (Williamson) and Thom (Van Hansis, whom I fondly remember as Luke Snyder on As the World Turns). The handsome Matthew McKelligon also stars as Jeremy, the guy whom Thom cheats with. All the drama begins on December 14, and judging from its intriguing trailer, this series might become my next web series addiction.

Other web series worth watching this week are:
In the latest episode of this soap opera, a few weeks have passed since the dramatic hostage crisis, in which Detective Drew was shot and Maddie was stabbed.
