Watch the New Dekkoo Original Series Stranger Hearts!

From writer-director Kevin James Thornton, the filmmaker behind the 2019 feature How to Get from Here to There, comes Stranger Hearts, a thoughtful, sexy and deeply heartfelt new Dekkoo Original Series following three queer characters of wildly different backgrounds.

First, there is Andre (newcomer Qua Robertson Harper), a shy young African-American man struggling with his sexual identity. When his mother finds a stack of gay porn hiding in his closet, the truth starts inching ever closer to the surface. Then there is Luka (Amo), a gender non-conforming photographer who has fallen on hard financial times. In need of a steady job, Luka decides to dip their toe into the potentially risky world of online escorting. Lastly, there is Billy (Matt Moran), a smooth-taking media mogul who finds his life turned upside down when he’s diagnosed with an incurable heart disease. While waiting for a transplant, he begins reevaluating his life and learning to appreciate the people closest to him.

Though they don’t know it, all three of these disparate characters are soon to be connected – through fate, work, family, love… and donuts.

Stranger Hearts is available now exclusively on Dekkoo.

The Team at My Pet Hippo Productions need your help to create a Marriage of Inconvenience

New names, new jobs, new lives, new husbands…? Two gay men entering a witness protection program find themselves “married” to help hide their identities from the dangerous people who want them dead. It’s an Odd Couple for the 2020s.

To create the complete first season of the six episode, laugh-out-loud-funny LGBTQ comedy streaming TV series Marriage of Inconvenience, the team at My Pet Hippo Productions if asking for some financial help.

They have the actors, they have the crew, they have the first season, six-episode script – written by the father/son comedy team of Jason T. Gaffney and Ed Gaffney (The Perfect Wedding, Analysis Paralysis) – and they have that incredible Holy Grail of film and TV production: Distribution with Dekkoo! Because of that, they have most of the money we need for this more ambitious project. With your help, they can raise the balance of the budget needed to put together something that you (and we) will love. A kick-ass, laugh-out-loud-funny and (romantic!) comedy series with the highest quality writing, performances, and production, at a fraction of the cost of a typical Hollywood TV show. No excuses, no compromises.

You can get a whole lot more information – and learn how to donate – by clicking HERE and visiting the Marriage of Inconvenience Kickstarter page. We can’t wait to share the full series with you sometime in the near future!
