New web series focuses on gay male friends over 50

The Daddies are coming! Woof!

Take a sneak peek at The Disappointments, a darkly comic web series from creator Rich Burns, about three gay best friends in their 50s trying to figure out their lives.

The Disappointments follows of group of close friends in their 50s who, rocked by the suicide of one of their own, are forced to face the failures and disappointments in their own lives.

Based in part on actual events, this series looks at a pivotal issue people face as they navigate their 50s: What do you do when you realize that time is running short, the road behind you is longer than the road ahead, and your job, your marriage, your relationship with your kids, your life has not turned out at all the way you had hoped and planned when you were young?

In The Disappointments, the characters take action. Most of it ill-advised. Some of it straight-up disastrous. All in the hopes of turning their disappointing lives around.

This web series aims to be unique by featuring gay men in their 50s dealing with the fallout from faltering careers and empty bank accounts and generally scrambling to figure out how to set themselves up to survive in the decades yet to come.
