Whew! Is it just me or is it hot in here?! It looks like actor and Noah's Arc alum Darryl Stephens has landed a new gig opposite MTV The Real World: New Orleans alum Danny Roberts. Towleroad has the exclusive details on this "as-yet-untitled new gay scripted series created by Larry Kennar, Executive Producer of The L Word, about a group of friends in downtown L.A."


Via Towleroad:


The show is scripted but shot cinema-verité style, is still untitled, and keeps it raw and in your face " with dark humor and explicit humanity." Further details are being kept quiet as a certain network is negotiating the rights to air the series.Filming began Monday.


Head on over to Towleroad to view additional exclusive production stills here.


Let's just pray this show doesn't end up on Logo. We know what happened the last time Stephens starred in a show on that network.

Congratulations to Darryl in being able to continue to work after Noah. On another note, I don't know the entertainment industry’s reason for showcasing an interracial couple when it comes to a gay black man having a partner. My assumption is so they can capture both the white and black viewer markets. However, it might be another form of racism; black men have better relationships with a white man as opposed to two black men being in a relationship together.

Maybe because like me there are many people out there who are in long term committed interracial relationships... this is the 21st century after all... variety does exist..

The first poster is more than likely correct. I suspect Noah's Arc met its end on Logo because it was, for all intents and purposes, a black show. Black folk too often fail to support our own, commercially speaking. Introducing an interractial couple is more commercially viable. White folk ain't none-too-interested in the lives of black folk, let alone gay black folk. Compare the success of the A-List to Noah's Arc, two entirely different audiences. One commercially viable, one (apparently)not.

And, congratulations, Darryl!!!!

Sorry but I disagree on part of this statement. From what I can gather from what I saw and read from the fans, there were large numbers of brown people supporting this show. However, I am of the opinion that the white audience base was probably not as receptive to the show as the brown audience, hence why it was snuffed out in its prime. I would not be surprised if the execs at MTV/LOGO view(ed) the situation like this - "We can probably get whites and even browns to watch an all white or interracial gay show, but an all brown show? Umm . . . I don't think so."

On a different note. It's great that Darryl Stephens is able to star in a new series. I wish him luck in his career. I hope the other stars in Noah's Arc will also be able to find successful parts in other things(movies, series, plays, etc.)if they choose to continue on with acting.
