Hello and Good morning (as it is morning as I type this up).
My name is Edwin and I am looking for a producer interested in an LGBTQ Series. Or just a partner to help me get this show off the ground.

The series has 6 completed scripts (episodes) and I am excited for it.

The series is titled "Samus' World" and it's about an openly Gay (mid 20's) Entertainment Reviewer named Samus Ortiz who decides to pitch a Dating Column for Gay Men to his boss, after a first date goes wrong. The show is a Drama/Comedy (Dramaedy) and it takes an interesting turn when at the end of the pilot we jump to Five Weeks Later (Present Day) to find the protagonist on the floor of his apartment dying from a stab wound. This wasn't an act of a hate crime but done by someone he knows. Questions are: Who stabbed him? Why did they stab him? And finally, does he live?

The remaining episodes flash back to the weeks prior to the incident as well as to the present and it has a voice over too (similar to 'Desperate Housewives' or 'Grey's Anatomy'). All leading up to a finale that will answer questions and have even more twists setting up for a second season.

What makes this show different for the LGBTQ Community is the fact there are NO sex scenes! The premise is about a Gay man trying to find a boyfriend in a city and community filled with men who only want hookups. It also sheds light on Masculinity Vs Feminity in the Gay Community, dating someone with HIV, Transgender people, body issues, self esteem issues as well various other topics.

Ofcourse I am looking for a small crew as well since this could be made into a webseries but I'm open to talk. The show has already gotten the attention of an Indianapolis LGBTQ Network and they want to shoot it there but I haven't received any contracts so it's just a guessing game.

If interested in what you read so far please send me an email and we can take it from there. Thank you and enjoy your day!
