'Man Hunting' Season

If you are of a certain age then perhaps you recall the gay-themed cable television series Queer As Folk. If you watched Queer As Folk, then this brief description may sound familiar: "A New York city writer and his friends traverse the gay world, exploring their ever-evolving sexuality, relationships, and what it means to be a true friend" only it's actually describing a more modern series from 2012 with another generation of men discovering life.

Hunting Season is a comedy series for today's smart-phone-absorbed youth, based on the blog of Alex, a single gay 20-something man living in Manhattan.   He documents himself and his friends by anonymously writing about his social life. The cast includes Ben Baur (Alex), Marc Sinoway, Jake Manabat, Jack Ferver, Tyler French, and Walker Hare.

The story was inspired and largely based on the popular blog The Great Cock Hunt and the novel of the same name. The series is in serial short-format webisodes, each lasting between 8 and 12 minutes.  It was first broadcast in September 2012 with three episodes. Two editions were made and the censored edition was broadcast on Logo TV free of charge.  The uncensored edition was broadcast as a paid-for download.  In 2013, a project was launched to fund the production of a
second season of Hunting Season.
