Jon Marcus’ series “Hunting Season” is set to debut its second season on Vimeo On Demand on May 5th, with a new episode every Tuesday for four weeks. The show chronicles modern gay life, satirizing dating in a world of constant connectedness and endless choice. It racked up an impressive two million views across multiple platforms in its first season, and the second was funded with a $150,000 Kickstarter campaign backed by its fan base.
The second season has notably abandoned its short web series format for a longer, cable TV –like “half-hour” length, consists of four episodes, and will cost $4.99 each to purchase and $2.99 to rent. Unlike Season 1, there will not be a “censored” version. Season 1 of the series can be watched for free here.
“Hunting Season” tells the story of Alex (Ben Baur), who has been keeping a secret sex blog since breaking up with his boyfriend two years ago, and enjoying all the benefits of being young and single in New York – where take out, dry cleaning and sex can be at your door in 15 minutes. When Alex runs into someone from his past he re-considers the consequences of his freedom and decides to make some changes, with unexpected results. His two best friends are going through their own turmoil as well, as Tommy (Marc Sinoway) confronts someone who despises him and everything he stands for, and TJ (Jake Manabat) and his husband explore non-monogamy in their marriage.
