Returning January 8th with fresh episodes, Old Dogs & New Tricks continues the story of four successful, middle-aged gay best friends, all struggling to stay vital and relevant in youth-obsessed West Hollywood.
With its several intertwining plotlines, Old Dogs & New Tricks is more adult and complex than most web series; think Entourage set in gay WeHo, which is why the Pilot scored a 95% ‘like’ rating from viewers and also received more than 5,000 YouTube views in less than two months of its debut.
Creator and star Leon Acord is excited about building on the heat generated by the pilot -- in more ways than one. He promises that "while the show is about the relationships between the main characters, we won’t shy away from sexual dialogue and content inherent in a show about four gay guys." Producing partner Laurence Whiting agrees, and adds to look for some sharp, co mic interactions: "Be warned, the gloves are off. Watch for some serious sparks to fly."
The new season boasts unique guest stars including hunky Thom Bierdz (Young and the Restless), comedian Patrick Bristow (Ellen, Austin Powers, Showgirls) as a hilarious psychiatrist, and Bruce L. Hart (The Reckoning, Homewrecker) playing a bitchy professional “frenemy”.
Acord (Carved in Stone, Some Prefer Cake), Curt Bonnem (Kowalski, Lovelace: The Rock Opera), Jeffrey Patrick Olson (Daddy), and David Pevsner (Naked Boys Singing, To Bitter and Back) star as the four friends. Other recurring roles include cabaret star Amanda Abel and Ryland Shelton.
