WATCH: Get Rolling with the UK’s First Queer Black Web Drama, “In the Deep”

Billed as the “first queer UK black web drama,” In the Deep follows the lives of four best friends living in East London, each with a secret of their own. Let’s see, we have:

Ade is stuck between two worlds, British-Nigerian and gay. He lives a double life, hiding his relationships on both ends; Emilia has the confusing ‘thing’ with Riley, her straight best friend who also has a boyfriend. Wesley is struggling to decide whether to fight for love or let someone else sweep him off his feet. Rene realises that he finally has to grow up.

The first two episodes (numero uno is above) have already been produced, but the producers have started an Indiegogo campaign to help raise money and awareness to churn out six more episodes. You can learn more about In the Deep through its website or Facebook page. Oh, and check out the second episode here.

    Am I the only one who thinks all of these “web dramas” suck? I’ve yet to see a good one.

  • B Damion

    @redcarpet: Check out “The Outs” and “Hunting Season.” Those are the only good gay web series I’ve seen.

  • redcarpet

    Watched them both, didn’t like.

    What are you moaning about. I liked it.
    Lived in UK for a little, couple years back,
    made me miss it. Oh the accents! Love British boys.

    @Cee: I like both of them and Eastsiders. I think The Outs is the best one.

  • Freddie27

    Am I the only one who found The Outs to be annoyingly pretentious? Wow, a drama about self-obsessed, whiny, New York hipsters, how original.
