New Gay Comedy Web Series Explores Nontraditional Parenthood


From the director of  the excellent LGBT short film Why Does God Hate Me?, Taking My Parents to Burning Man (feature documentary), Shooting The Musical (feature), & Average Dicks (web series) comes a gay-themed new web series, Inconceivable.

The series is the brainchild of award-winning Canadian filmmaker Joel Ashton McCarthy.  Based on its pilot episode, the series was awarded $50,000 by Storyhive voters who overwhelmingly supported it.

In the show, after 6 months of a label-less, open-relationship, Rita (spiritually minded 24 year old lesbian artist working as a mental health worker) and Adam (25 year old flamboyant, straight career obsessed filmmaker) decide that they are better off as friends than romantic partners. This realisation changes drastically when a week later they find out they are pregnant due to a failed condom and a failed Plan b pill. After debating whether this anomaly is bad luck or destiny, Rita and Adam decide to keep the baby and enter the wild and crazy world of unplanned parenthood. A true story of what to expect when you’re not expecting.
