Pretty Dudes S2 Continuing Funds

I'm Chance Calloway, creator and showrunner of the digital series PRETTY DUDES. My goal with the show is to tell stories no one else is telling for an underserved audience. The cast and crew of the series are as inclusive as the characters in the stories we tell.

We're currently in production on our second season, and we need additional financial push to help us complete our second season episodes, including "Chicos Lindos," our caustic love letter to the classic TGIF-era sitcoms; "Untitled Sunji Spencer Project," a blistering character study directed by Stanley Wong ("21 Jump Street," "Hand Fart"); "Deus Sex Machina," our bold take on queer male sex in media; and "Present Tense," a blistering character study directed by Heather Matarazzo ("Stuck," "The L Word").

All the funds will support the remaining locations we need to secure, and help pay post-production costs for video and sound editing. I want to be sure that the finalized project has the same quality that our cast and crew have put into it from conception to execution. Looking to have the episodes finalized by the end of August at the latest. Any and all support you can provide would be greatly appreciated by myself, our cast and our crew.

A group of friends in the big city - it’s been done before, but never like on PRETTY DUDES. Created by Chance Calloway, the boundary-breaking and award-winning digital comedy series looks at the constructs of race, gender, sexuality, and all intersections of life in a comedic examination of what it is to be present and aware in today's America.

The series boasts an inclusive and intersectional group of characters, portrayed by an equally inclusive cast of actors including Bryan Michael Nuñez ("American Vandal"), Yoshi Sudarso ("Buffalo Boys"), and Xavier Avila, who reprises his award-winning role from our inaugural season. The first season was independently and intimately produced with no outside funding, growing to reach a passionate worldwide audience.

PRETTY DUDES exists to show the world the way it truly is, in humor and in heartache, with love despite our differences and hope despite our circumstances. We continue to express, in front of and behind the camera, that we see ourselves best when we dare to see each other.
