Well, it SOUNDS interesting in a completely deranged sort of enhanced phony reality show sort of way…it’s LIVING FOR THE DEAD, an 8 episode new series debuting as part of Hulu’s “Huluween” month of programming on Wednesday, October 18th. It’s from the creators of “Queer Eye” and out queer actress Kristen Stewart who co-created and co-produces the series.
In a nutshell, “Living for the Dead” features five “fabulous, queer ghost hunters” who tour the country investigating reported hauntings with an LGBTQ+ theme.
“It’s so cool and enlivening that me and my best friend CJ Romero had this funny idea and now it’s a show. It started as a bit of a hypothetical silly pipe dream and now I am so proud to have shepherded something that is as moving and meaningful as it is truly a gay old time. Our cast makes me laugh and cry and they had the courage and heart to take us places I wouldn’t go by myself. And it’s a super cool maiden voyage for the company I’ve started with my partners Dylan Meyer and Maggie McLean. This is just the beginning for us and for ‘Living for the Dead.’ We wanna one day have traipsed across the entire spooky ass country. Maybe the world!”– Kristen Stewart
It all sounds a bit silly boots but…why the hell not? Why shouldn’t LGBTQ+ audiences have silly shows to enjoy? Also: the cast is hella cute.
