OD&NT Gets Over 2500 Views in First Week

Aug. 8,  2011 – West Hollywood, CA – The pilot of the new web series Old Dogs & New Tricks has scored more than 2,500 YouTube views in its first week online with a 95% “like” rating, with no marketing other than their Facebook and Twitter accounts.

Old Dogs & New Tricks focuses on four diverse, successful gay best friends—each located squarely within middle age—and how they react (or overreact) and adjust (or not) to getting older in youth-obsessed West Hollywood.

“Think The Birdcage meets Sex and the City, and you’ve got an idea of how this fabulously fun show plays,” wrote the website, which covers the web TV industry.

Leon Acord (Carved in Stone, Some Prefer Cake), Curt Bonnem (Lovelace: The Rock Opera, Beastly Bombing), Jeffrey Patrick Olson (Daddy) and David Pevsner (Naked Boys Singing, To Bitter and Back) star as the four friends; cabaret star Amanda Abel and Ryland Shelton appear in recurring roles. 

Old Dogs & New Tricks was written and created by Acord, and is directed and developed for the web by Arvin Bautista (My Suicide).  Matt Ladensack serves as Line Producer, with Laurence Whiting and Acord acting as Executive Producers.  The show’s score is composed by veteran film composer Nic. tenBroek (Dark Angel, Xena: Warrior Princess). 

“The response has absolutely exceeded our expectations,” says show’s star/creator Acord, “and we’re very grateful for all the wonderful comments and subscribers we’ve received so far.”

The producers plan to shoot a new two-part episode, then use it and the pilot to raise funds for an eight-episode first season series.For info:
