Make Room for Daddy

Colin McCormack (BearCity star Gerald McCullouch) thinks he has it all – a great job, a steady stream of hot younger guys, and a best friend (Dan Via) whose devotion he takes for granted. But when a charming and mercurial intern (Jaime Cepero) sweeps him off his feet, Colin sees a chance for something more: A family of his own. What he discovers instead is a shattering secret that may cost Colin everything – and everyone – he holds dear.

By turns funny, heartbreaking and hopeful, Daddy explores the universal need for love and connection, and the evolving understanding of “family” in today’s rapidly changing world.

Following a buzz-heavy world premiere in New York and an extended run in Los Angeles, the critical smash play by actor Dan Via became this big screen adaptation, directed by star Gerald McCullouch and co-starring the original creator himself.

Daddy is now available on Dekkoo.

Stream the first two seasons of Successful People

The hilarious new series Successful People comes from writers/stars Theresa Ryan & Artie O’Daly, better known as the YouTube musical duo Skip & Terri. The series revolves around Chet and Laura, a songwriting duo in their tenth year of trying to make it, who start to realize their chances of success may have already passed them by.

Laura is happily married – and very-much pregnant; Chet has gone 13 years without a boyfriend – and has no other friends to speak of. Together they’ve written some of the catchiest jingles middle America has ever heard, but a Top Ten hit for Rihanna continues to elude them.

As they encounter a variety of people who have actually achieved success, Laura fears she has begun the slow slide into “contentment.”  This reignites her passion for their dream, but, as her douchey high school friend Jake points out, her soon-to-be-born baby may put a kink in her plans. And leave Chet not only friend-less, but dream-less, too.

A single-camera comedy set in Los Angeles, Successful People explores the ideas of achievement vs. contentment, if goals should have expiration dates, and what lengths someone will go to to get what they want.  Each episode takes a different type of “successful person” and examines the impact they have on Laura & Chet as they work to achieve their dream.

Is there a set path to success?  Do our own lives keep us from what we want?  Are all successful people just assholes?  With the clock ticking, Laura and Chet are willing to try anything to become the one thing they’ve never been: Successful People.

You can stream the full first two seasons of the series RIGHT NOW on Dekkoo.
