Old Dogs & New Tricks
Does (sex) life end for gay men as they approach 50? That’s the question explored by the comedic, fast-paced & serialized web series Old Dogs & New Tricks, through the friendship and tribulations of four diverse and otherwise successful West Hollywood men – each one located squarely within middle age.
Los Angeles (in general) and West Hollywood (in particular) add a strong flavor to Old Dogs & New Tricks, with its traffic, earthquakes, plastic surgery, and strongly youth-obsessed culture. But the focus remains on how these four different gay men react (or overreact) and adjust (or not) to getting older.
n the series pilot, West Hollywood agent Nathan Adler recalls how he first met 80's rocker Brad King, personal trainer 'Muscles' Carter & actor Ross Stein as he begrudgingly prepares for his 50th birthday party.
