“Two Brothers is a drama series that follows Aiden and Aaron, a set of fraternal twins who move to Severn Bridge. We follow the very real struggles of this small town community, as each person fights to find self acceptance. Fitting in will be exceptionally hard for these two. Not only are they visible minorities, but one is also gay.”
My name is Andrew Meikle, and I am the writer, director, and producer of the series. I have been acting and modelling since I was nine years old. In 2010 I decided to start my own Independent film company called M Productions. Since then I have finished three features films entitled "Consequences", "The One That Got Away", and "The One Night Stand".
This show is extremely important to me. Growing up I NEVER saw anyone like me on tv and it was hard to relate to the character that I would watch week after week. Whenever there was a black person in a show they played either the best friend, a token , or a side character that made appearances. Yes we had shows like "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, Moesha, Sister Sister, Girlfriends, Family Matters. The Parkers , One on One e.t.c. This made me happy, to finally see black families being portrayed on TV. There was never a gay black man on tv so I could still never fully relate.
With this show I'm planning to change that. I want black queer males around the world to watch this show and see that it's okay to be black and gay. I want them to look at the character of Aaron and relate to him. I want them to finally see someone on their screen where they can say "I know what he's going through"

We are currently in the process off filming the first season of this 8 episode series. We held a red carpet fundraiser to raise money to begin filming and it helped us out. We still need more so that we can pay the amazingly talented actors who are donating their time because they believe in this project. The funds that we raise will also go towards food, transportation, film festival fees, promotional material , and post production costs. Any funds that we have left over will go towards SEASON TWO !
