Kris Kidd is a confessional poet and essayist based in Los Angeles. He is the author of two published books— Down for Whatever (2016) and I Can’t Feel My Face (2014).
#ELSEWHERE, his “clinically depressed” weekly sex column, was released on NAKID Magazine in the spring of 2017. A series of darkly comedic and loosely interconnected personal essays about his relationship with sex and his struggle with mental illness, each of the entries tackled a variety of heavy subjects with razor sharp wit and unflinching honesty.
The column quickly developed a loyal following leading to Dekkoo optioning the rights to develop the essays into a Dekkoo-original series.
#ELSEWHERE is currently in pre-production with Kidd handling writing duties on all episodes. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months.
“Kris Kidd digs deeper into his psyche than ever before, giving readers a monstrous glimpse into his inner world. Heavy on insight and light on apologies, the column is an intimate portrait of the young author’s experience with depression and self-destruction.” —Office Magazine
“Kidd’s shameless style of confessional writing evokes a bruise, so painfully funny and self-deprecatingly sincere that it feels as though we aren’t even supposed to be reading it.” —Huffington Post
In case you missed it, the cast and crew of the upcoming Dekkoo-original series ‘Poster Boys’ shared the photo above to their social media accounts. It was taken just after wrapping production on the final episodes of season one.
Be sure to follow Paper Boys on twitter.
‘Paper Boys’ is a gay romantic fantasy-dramedy about discovering who you are, and with a newly found magical power, becoming who you want to be.
Check out the announcement below that co-creators Curtis Casella, Kyle Cabral and some of the cast shot while preparing to shoot new episodes for Dekkoo:
Here’s just a few quotes about this inventive series:
“Paper Boys is a delightful new web series that takes the sometimes harsh reality of being a confused millennial trying to juggle love, a career, and a new city, and spices it up with a bit of magic to make it all the more captivating.” – The Huffington Post
“It’s fun, sexy and a unique way to look at the gay world of twentysomethings.” – HeSaid Magazine
“It…does impressive cinematic justice on a small budget, but more importantly it feels relatable for combining gay and straight characters into something resembling real life.” – Queerty
You can check out the first two episodes of the series now over at the ‘Paper Boys’ web site until the complete first season of ‘Paper Boys’ becomes available exclusively on Dekkoo in 2018.
A wonderful piece about Dekkoo appeared on the Huff Post earlier this week. The article discusses our dedication to the success of our collaborations with filmmakers (like our partnership with creator Pablo Andreu and his series STRAY) and our mission of bringing gay audiences programming that, in many cases, can’t be found on any other digital platform.
We are absolutely tickled pink to announce the Dekkoo-original series ‘I’m Fine‘ will screen as part of NewFest 2017. Founded in 1988, NewFest is one of the most comprehensive forums of national and international LGBTfilm/video in the world.
As we mentioned before the second season of ‘I’m Fine’ is currently in post-production and will debut on Dekkoo in early 2018.
