Three Premieres Come to Here TV

Three Premieres Come to Here TV This Friday

Half-Share, Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads, and The Gayest Show Ever all debut this Friday on Here TV.

June 3, 2013 (NEW YORK) — Here TV (www.heretv.com), America’s only gay TV network, will premiere three new pieces of programming this Friday, June 7, 2013. As part of its summer 2013 Pride Season slate, the network is pleased to Here TV debut of the 30-minute comedy Half-Share, the television premiere of the feature-length film Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads, and the network premiere of the new series The Gayest Show Ever.

Half-Share, from directors Sean Hanley and Jesse Archer, stars Alec Mapa, Jack Plotnick, Kyle Spidle, and Sam Pancake. Fresh out of a long-term relationship, Mac (Spidle) leaves Oregon for a summer on Fire Island and must decide if he can handle his eccentric new housemates on the mythical Island of Misfit Boys.

Varla Jean and the Mushroomheads was directed by Michael Shiralli and stars Jeffery Roberson as Varla Jean Merman. After years of performing in dive bars and bathhouses around New Orleans, semicelebrity and loose chanteuse Varla Jean Merman is watching her audience get older by the minute. In a last-ditch effort to prop up her sagging career, Varla decides to go after a younger crowd—kids.

The Gayest Show Ever takes a smart, sexy, and hilarious bite out of global gay culture. Designed for straights and gays alike, the half-hour show is led by a lively host and features field interviews with guest reporters. The show blends a documentary sensibility with cheeky humor. With political controversies, one-of-a-kind personalities, and bizarre community rituals, the show paints a portrait of gay life like you’ve never seen before.
