Casting Call For New Showtime Network Documentary Series

Cable network Showtime, producer of groundbreaking shows Queer as Folk and The L Word, is casting a new documentary series called Way Out. The show is about gays and lesbians coming out to important people in their lives.

Producers Adam Drucker and Bryn Freedman (A&E's Intervention), say Way Out will help the people it profiles and "use the vast reach of television to enlighten and increase understanding of what it's like to feel compelled to hide an essential part of oneself."

Drucker and Freedman are looking for people who have made a firm decision to come out to important people in their lives and share that journey with a TV audience. They say there were compelled to create the new series after reading a recent San Francisco State University study of teenagers coming out to their parents. The study found that teens who were rejected by their parents after coming out were more vulnerable to depression, drug use, and suicide attempts, but that parents who took baby steps towards accepting their gay children greatly improved their chances at living a heathy life. Drucker and Freedman say the goal of the show is to increase visibility and awareness in the hopes that parents of gay children watching the show will take those baby steps.
