If you have been looking for more queer content to watch, Revry’s first original reality series Putting On will premiere on November 30, 2018. It follows Israeli born model, actor, entrepreneur and Instagram influencer On Mekahel as he prepares to debut his underwear brand, M.O. Underwear, with his ex-boyfriend.
The first season of the IGTV reality series follows On’s journey of “building his brand with his ex, dealing with manufacturing errors while navigating conflicting deadlines, a final product photo shoot, broken promises and the struggle of managing personal relations.”
“I am really excited about sharing this part of my life and the opportunity to be featured on Revry,” says On. “It has been and still is a wild ride starting a business from the ground up. I hope that what people will take away from the show is that chasing dreams really gives meaning to life. With passion and determination, the opportunities that we create for ourselves are endless and I wanted to show that even in a ‘hook-up obsessed subculture’, gay men can still fulfill relationship goals.”
Revry’s CEO, Damian Pelliccione shares, “Revry is so excited to release PUTTING ON as our first reality series and on IGTV. The unique circumstances that brought On to our team were what made us love the series instantly. The idea was so fresh and true to life, going into business with an ex. It’s funny, sexy, and a perfect binge-worthy reality drama.”
“When I first met On Mekahel, I knew I had to create a series around his life,” says Colby Cote (Creator/Executive Producer at Visionary Studios). “His career and social life is fascinating, it’s a mix of indulgence and passion. You can find him at night hanging with celebrities and attending exclusive parties but during the day, you will see him hustling the town building his fashion and beauty empire. He merges his business and personal life in a way that is both dramatic and inspiring. It really is fascinating to watch and I look forward to sharing his life with everyone.”
Here’s the trailer!
