The wait is over! 56 Dean Street’s highly successful first web series The Grass Is Always Grindr is back in 2019. Handsome closeted boxer Adam (Taofique Folarin) and ‘loud and proud’ Insta-famous Joe (Denholm Spurr) continue their serodiscordant romance – as Adam balances a HIV diagnosis against his upcoming fight, and PrEP-taking Joe ends up on the chillout scene. Francis (Jonathan Blake) has a fling with a twist, and Ryan (Matthew Hodson) must confront ghosts from the past.
Made with generous support from Public Health England, MAD Trust, MAC Aids Fund and Impulse London, this new series gives a truly pan-London look at gay sexual life across the capital: from The Glory to legendary Heaven, to 56 Dean Street and Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.
We’re examining real, pertinent issues affecting modern gay sex lives, including chemsex, HIV, U=U, porn, sober sex, PrEP and testing, through a creatively written and produced drama.
New characters include 19-year-old DJ Leo (Adonis Jenieco), drag queen club promoter Trish (Richard Watkins), manic chillout host John-Paul (Alexis Gregory), porn star Eve (Siân Docksey) and psychosexual therapist Fabian (Richard Unwin).
Written by Patrick Cash, directed by Luke Davies, and produced by Dragonflies Productions (The Chemsex Monologues), and Brown Boy Productions (Soft Lad), with the help of CW+, the new series is a ‘must watch’.
