Wallflowers (c) Dekkoo Films

Coming Soon: Wallflowers

The first two seasons of Wallflowers, a comedy series by filmmaker Kieran Turner (director of acclaimed documentary Jobriath A.D.), is coming to DVD in February in a Special Edition release from Dekkoo Films. Set in the cruelly comedic dating world of New York City, Wallflowers details the disastrous romantic exploits of a tight knit group of Gen-X stragglers coping with the ecstasy and the agony of single life – as members of a Manhattan support group for the hopelessly single.

 

The show features an impressive, talented cast of NYC-based theater and film actors, including Chad Kimball (Tony Nominated for Broadway’s “Memphis”), Sarah Saltzberg (creator and star of Broadway’s hit musical “The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee”), Gideon Glick (Broadway’s “Spring Awakening” & “Spider Man: Turn Off The Dark”), Gibson Frazier (Man of the Century), and Marcia DeBonis (That’s What She Said, The Truman Show, Whatever Works).

Dropping the Soap (c) Dekkoo Films

Don’t Get Caught Dropping the Soap

Dekkoo Films is proud to announce that on February 20th, a truly gut-busting 10-part series starring Jane Lynch and Paul Witten will be hitting DVD shelves. Executive produced by Jane Lynch, “Dropping the Soap” goes behind-the-scenes of the long-running (and gawdawful) fictional soap-opera “Collided Lives”.

 

As the program struggles to stay afloat, a new Executive Producer named Olivia Vanderstein (hilarious played by Lynch) shows up to shake things up. While the cast and crew desperately try to hold things together, Julian Draker (the soap’s leading man of “questionable talent and moral compass”) played by co-creator Paul Witten struggles to keep his personal life private and his cast members employed.

 

“As the TV soap opera itself circles the drain, I love how our crew of self-centered and desperate actors charge ever forward to save their show from the chopping block,” said Lynch. “The writing is so sharp and witty as the off-screen shenanigans become almost more absurd than the storylines of ‘Collided Lives.'”

Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie (c) Dekkoo Films

Just Came Out: Coffee House Chronicles

Coffee House Chronicles: The Movie is a comedy that explores the many ways LGBT people connect in the world of the Internet, social media, and of course coffee houses. The movie, based on the successful web series from writer-director Stewart Wade, features nine vignettes and covers two days and one night of love, hookups, heartbreaks, and hopes in gay Los Angeles.

 

In Secret Asian Man, a meet-cute takes an unexpected turn when Darin (Mykee Steen) gets to the house of Matthew (Cesar Cipriano) and discovers that the hottie in the wrap-around shades is Asian – and Darin doesn’t “do” Asians. In An Exception, Jeff (Darryl Stephens) is haunted – literally – by his perfect ex (Chris Salvatore). Can his quirky and less-than-perfect BFF, Anthony (Drew Droege), get him to leave behind the idealized past in exchange for a messy, imperfect future together?

I’m Fine: Season 2 is coming to Dekkoo in January, 2018, and there’s a teaser available now!

 

In season 2 of the acclaimed Dekkoo Original Series, Nate decides it’s time to grow up and move on from his breakup with Joey. However, Nate’s fall-out with Jeff continues to loom while the friends in his life seem to have a better grasp of what growing up and moving on really means.

 

A fresh, honest, and humorous look at gay male relationships, friendships and the often-blurry line between the two, I’m Fine: Season 1 offered up an adorable “pocket series,” consisting of eight short episodes, each around 5-10 minutes in length. Brandon Kirby, a Los Angeles based director, created each in an effort to challenge long format series and embrace the short attention spans of contemporary viewers.

Just Came Out: Romeu & Romeu

A classic and timeless story rewritten to represent today’s diversity, Romeu & Romeu is a must-see. This gorgeous Brazilian series was produced independently, has won several awards around the world and is now coming to DVD in November thanks to Dekkoo Films.

 

Romeu & Romeu adapts the classic love story “Romeo and Juliet” by William Shakespeare. Following some patterns of the original version, this new version of the story takes place today, in the fictional city of Verona of the South, where the Montagues and Capulets are replaced by the Campelos and Monteiros, powerful families that share a bitter rivalry known throughout the entire the city, in the shadow of a crime committed in the past. The similarities to the original story end there. Romeo and Juliet become Romulo (Arthur Chermont) and Ramon (Joao Mesquita), characters that mix personality traits of both originals, giving a new life to the well-known characters and plot.
