9GO! comedy shorts Metro Sexual are set to screen in the US on free streaming service Crackle, and in Canada on LGBTQ+ platform OUTtv and Prime Channels.
The comedy follows the lives of doctors Stephanie Huddleston (Geraldine Hickey) and Langdon Marsh (Riley Nottingham), who work at Metropolitan Sexual Health and claims to be the first Australian sitcom with all LGBTIQ lead characters.
The 8 x 10-minute series reached close to 400,000 Australians on 9GO! last year. It was co-created, written and directed by Henry Boffin and co-created, written and edited by Nicholas Kraak, both partners in Brisbane and Melbourne-based production company, Humdrum with Riley Nottingham.
“I am thrilled we are able to bring Metro Sexual to an American and Canadian audience and have found our home with Crackle and OUTtv. It’s such a hoot to play in the wild world of sexual health and hopefully Steph, Langdon and their crazy clinic can bring some much-needed laughter to the world,” said Nottingham.
“We are proud to bring Metro Sexual to Crackle,” said Philippe Guelton, President of Crackle Plus. “This ground-breaking comedy is the rare combination of relevant and irreverent, examining a serious topic in a hilarious way.”
“We’re thrilled to be welcoming Metro Sexual to our fall line-up on OUTtv,” said Brad Danks, CEO of OUTtv . “The show has received a great reception in its home country of Australia, especially for its all LGBTQ+ lead cast. The show is a perfect fit for our network – it’s a hilarious queer mockumentary series.”
