Webcaster's content has U's interest piqued

NEW YORK — Gotham Netcaster Reelshort.com has signed indie filmmaker Q. Allan Brocka to release a four-part short Webisodic series online this fall, with an eye toward bowing the films on other media outlets via Reelshort’s relationship with Universal.

The eight-minute first episode of the series, titled “Rick & Steve, The Happiest Gay Couple in All the World,” premiered at Sundance in January, and has since unspooled at more than 70 film festivals worldwide, including Seattle, Sydney and Outfest in Los Angeles.

Set to bow in September, short chronicles Rick and Steve’s forays into surrogate fatherhood for two female friends. Three successive episodes will appear in October.

Reelshort founder and chief exec Jeremy Bernard said production and development execs at Universal have expressed interest in “Rick & Steve” and will meet shortly with Brocka to discuss the possibility of migrating the ‘Net series to other media outlets.
