Grindr’s first original scripted series Bridesman is streaming on the gay app this week.
The six-episode series premieres on Grindr on Friday (April 1) and stars comedian Jimmy Fowlie alongside an ensemble cast.
In a synopsis, Grindr describes Bridesman as a comedic limited series that follows “gay and awful” lead character Terry.
“Terry is forced to fulfill bridesmaid duties for his best friend despite his disdain for the construct of marriage and an electric sexual connection with the groom,” the synopsis reads.
“The series is an irreverent, fast-paced satire of modern wedding culture and the ‘old fashioned trend’ of monogamy.
“Follow Terry and a stellar ensemble cast through the hallmark events required of a bridal party from the sexy bridal boudoir photoshoot to the bachelorette party to the rehearsal dinner.”
Jimmy Fowlie (pictured) plays Terry, alongside fellow comedians Sydnee Washington and Shannon Devido in lead roles.
Queer personalities Kim Petras, Liva Pierce, Calvin Seabrooks and Benito Skinner also make appearances in the series’ episodes.
However don’t worry if you’re a Scruff user. You can also watch all of Bridesman on YouTube on Monday (April 4).
Campy comedy series Bridesman is ‘tailor-made’ for Grindr
Bridesman creator John Onieal said, “It’s so exciting to create something as joyous as it is gay.
“We’re grateful that this talented team and Grindr are giving this project life. Finally we get to center the narrative on that gay in the bridal party.”
Writing on Twitter, actor Jimmy Fowlie joked, “Being the lead of a series that can only be seen on a sex app is unfortunately on-brand for me.
“Picture me downloading Grindr to my dad’s droid so he can watch the pilot.”
Speaking last year, Grindr marketing director Alex Black also explained the series is Grindr’s first foray into long-form content.
“It’s smart, queer, campy, and features sharp commentary on gay dating, heteronormative standards, and Grindr itself,” he said.
