Dekko gives us another outstanding series, "I'm Fine". Set in West Hollywood the series tells the story of Nate, who just broke up with his boyfriend – BUT IS TOTALLY FINE! – and in doing so takes a fresh, honest, and humorous look at gay male relationships and friendship, and the often-blurry line between the two.
The "pocket series" season 1 consists of eight short episodes, each around 5 minutes in length. Brandon Kirby a Los Angeles based director crafted each in an effort to challenge long-format series and embrace the short attention spans of contemporary streaming television viewers.
“My motivation to make “I’m Fine” was the end of HBO’s ‘Looking,’ and how there is no series dedicated solely to how we as gay men experience friendships and relationships,” says Kirby. “Beyond what ‘Looking’ was able to achieve, I want to talk about gay male friendship in the way Noah Baumbach’s “Frances Ha” and the “Broad City” series have explored the fluidity found within female friendship."
“I’m Fine” episodes 1 through 4 will be available on Dekkoo.com April 19, with episodes 5 through 8 launching June 21. It is Dekkoo's third original series, following the critically acclaimed (really) dramatic series "Feral", about gay life and love in the Bible Belt and "Love Is Blind", which follows fourteen single New York City men on seven real blind dates (one per episode).
