Watch now! 'Stranger Hearts' official trailer.

The Dekkoo-original series ‘Stranger Hearts‘ debuts on March 12.

From writer-director Kevin James Thornton, ‘Stranger Hearts’ is a thoughtful, sexy and deeply heartfelt new series following three queer characters of wildly different backgrounds. First, there is Andre, 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, 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, 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.
