We here at Collider are happy to debut a behind-the-scenes featurette for the second season finale of the online sitcom Husbands. Written and created by Brad Bell and Jane Espenson, the series stars Bell and Sean Hemeon (Criminal Minds) as a tabloid darling and recently outed LA Dodger who spark a media firestorm when they get drunk-married in Las Vegas. The marriage equality-geared series has broken barriers by becoming the first online series presented by the esteemed Paley Center television institute, and ushers in what is hopefully a more welcoming and inclusive era of series TV. Ira Glass remarked of Husbands, “You’re peeking at a future of TV, of America.”
The show has been host to a multitude of guest stars like Joss Whedon, Jon Cryer, Felicia Day, Tricia Helfer, John Hodgman and more, and this featurette goes behind the scenes of the show’s season two finale and features interviews with Husbands‘ creators and stars. Hit the jump to check it out.
Here’s the synopsis for Husbands:
Waking up drunk-married in Vegas used to be an adventure reserved for one man and one woman; however, thanks to a new federal equality amendment, tabloid darling Cheeks and LA Dodgers player, Brady Kelly, find themselves hungover and wed. Unwilling to undermine the hard-fought battle with a public quickie divorce, these two decide to make a go of it–despite their short courtship of just six weeks. Dating was going okay, but how will it work out now that they’re HUSBANDS?
