Mission Statement

We are a group of mostly-queer, mostly-female storytellers committed to truthful representation of our communities. This includes placing people of color, LGBTQ-identified people, and women both in front of and behind the camera.

The Story

You can pick your friends, you can sleep around, but you can’t sleep with your friends. “It’s like, taboo. FCK (Friends Cant Kiss) is a web series about a group of queer friends who are truly . . . fcked.

When two gay best friends, Ben and Matthew, accidentally sleep together, are they dating? Are they still friends? What’s supposed to happen next?

Meanwhile, Leigh’s been doing everything to coerce her girlfriend, Julia, into allowing a third into the bedroom.

Unfortunately, Julia’s waited until the last moment to confront her girlfriend about it. Literally, the last moment: the guy is standing in the living room. What the fck are we supposed to do now?

We know what this looks like, but FCK isn’t about sex. It’s about family. FCK is a show about young queer folks navigating loving, unconventional relationships in conventional, hetero New York. 

It’s a big, gay love letter to the families you find, whether or not you’re fcking them.
