Here TV, Pilgrim Pictures and Cheo Pictures have announced the VOD release of Leon Cheo's "People Like Us". Co-developed with Action for AIDS Singapore, the first season of Cheo's series follows the lives of Joel, Ridzwan, Rai and Isaac: four gay men living in Singapore whose lives interconnect in eye-opening ways.
It's Friday night, probably the most important night on the gay calendar. Joel is a 26-year-old public relations exec who lives with his parents and is out to everyone who cares to know. After a night out clubbing, Joel meets Ridzwan, a closeted accountant with a very healthy sexual appetite. Their relationship slowly blossoms but differing expectations about sex and coming out create complications. Rai is a 20-year-old army recruit and new to the scene. After a bad date, he continues searching for Mr. Right and meets Isaac on Grindr. Isaac is a 45-year-old senior private banker who led a double life when he was married but is now enjoying his newly found freedom. When Rai finds out what Isaac does in his spare time, he loses faith in finding love in a world where sex is on everyone's mind. Will Joel, Ridzwan, Rai, and Isaac find what they are looking for?
