OML will release Dating ‘In’ Place, a new original queer comedy series, on the OML on Revry channel come November 1, 2020.
Dating ‘In’ Place will be available to stream exclusively on the new OML on Revry channel on the Revry Network. For those who might not know, OML on Revry is “the first 24/7 live TV channel exclusively catering to queer womxn (lesbian, bi, trans female, etc.)”. The new channel is available for free globally (in over 130 countries).
The upcoming series has been described as a comedy that puts a spin on the realities of dating during the “new normal” that’s been created because of what the world’s currently going through.
The description reads:
Told through the screens and mobile devices of four young women, the show follows Jo, a hopeful romantic who finds the woman of her dreams–only to discover that her crush lives halfway across the world. Not to shrink from a challenge, Jo connects with her crush online, making plans to meet in Hawaii for their official first date…when 2020 hits.
Dating ‘In’ Place will have 10 episodes. The series was created by director Marina Rice Bader (Ava’s Impossible Things). Shantell Yasmine Abeydeera (The Influencer, Girls Like Magic) wrote the series and also stars as Jo’s crush Debika. The creative team also includes composer Allyson Newman (The L Word Generation Q) and editor Andrea Maxwell (Spider-Man, Black Panther).
“As someone who has always been both challenged and fascinated by the idea of ‘true love’,” shared Marina Rice Bader. “I wanted to explore what it means to be on the brink of that magical experience only to have circumstances out of your control crash in and threaten to steal it away from you.” Bader added, “Finding real love is tough enough, you know, without a global pandemic working against you.”
Shantell Yasmine Abeydeera said, “The pandemic hindered a lot more than just romance. With film productions being shut down indefinitely, filmmakers not only lost their livelihoods but their purpose as storytellers. I saw this as an incredible opportunity to craft a story around the technology that was available to me in the hopes that it would allow me to continue to tell inclusive stories.”
Dating ‘In’ Place, in its entirety, will be available to stream on Revry (watch.revry.tv/OML) on November 1, 2020, at 5 pm (PST) or available for streaming On-Demand at 11 am (PST).
Along with Abeydeera, the cast also includes Emily Goss (Future Man, Seasons of Love), Kari Alison Hodge (Goodkisser, Crazy Bitches), and Mandahla Rose (All About E, Venice: The Series).
