Interview: Rich Burns, creator of the darkly comic web series, The Disappointments

Today I’m talking with Rich Burns, the creator of the new web series, "The Disappointments." In addition to writing the 11 part series, Burns also acts as co-director, co-executive producer and one of the four stars of the show. "The Disappointments" follows three middle-aged gay best friends trying to figure out how to live their best lives. Burns describes the show as a “darkly comic series featuring gay people in their 50s, who suddenly find themselves standing in a room, looking at their their belongings, their careers, their unhappy personal lives, their reflection in the mirror and asking, ‘How did this get to be my life?’ Disillusioned. Disappointed. And the clock is ticking…” In addition to Burns, the series features Gedde Watanabe, James Campbell and Trevor LaPaglia. Steve Cubine and Burns share directing duties. The first episodes of The Disappointments premiered on YouTube on November 8 and each Monday two new installments are released for a total of 11 chapters. The two-part finale will be released December 6. Link to watch "The Disappointments" on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC9Desfwm8o5iMFXcHXEMjKw (photo: Ramon Christian)
