A campaign has been launched on Kickstarter to fund further episodes of a new and innovative web series about a diverse group of gay men in their 40s. Most conventional comedy dramas about groups of friends and their various love lives tend to feature men and women in their 20s and 30s. The New 30, however, offers something refreshingly different - not only in that it focuses primarily on characters who are gay, but also in that they are in their 40s. The show follows Elliot and his friends as they discover life as fortysomethings is not what they expected it to be. Far from having figured everything out, life is just as crazy, unpredictable and challenging as it was their 20s and 30s. In other words, 40 is ''The New 30''!
