The cast of home-grown queer web series Metro Sexual have celebrated the sitcom getting international attention.
The series stars Geraldine Hickey and Riley Nottingham as Langdon and Steph, who work at the disaster-prone Metropolitan Sexual Health Clinic.
The series’ eight episodes debuted on 9Go! late last year, and are available to stream on 9Now in Australia.
And from September 1, the series will stream on US service Crackle and also Canadian services OUTtv and Prime Channels.
Riley Nottingham said he’s thrilled Metro Sexual has sold overseas for American and Canadian audiences.
“It’s such a hoot to play in the wild world of sexual health,” he said.
“Hopefully Steph, Langdon and their crazy clinic can bring some much-needed laughter to the world.”
Geraldine Hickey applauded the series as “an Australian comedy on commercial TV with two gays in the lead and an exceptional support cast”.
“It was hands down one of the most wonderful and fun things I’ve been a part of,” she said.
Watch the trailer for Metro Sexual below:
In Metro Sexual, bubbly Langdon, and sardonic Steph are both smart, empathetic doctors. However the pair butt heads with their very different approaches to patient care.
When the government threatens to cut funding, the pair’s boss demands Langdon and Steph prove their clinic’s worth.
They must put their differences aside and do whatever it takes to get more patients through the door and save the clinic.
The pair have to deal with Schoolies season, a crabs outbreak among randy octogenarians in a retirement village, a Bikie gang leader who needs his prostate checked and more.
