Black Sheep has been working hard to tease its upcoming web series, Hello, Stranger, a BL series directed by Petersen Vargas (2 Cool 2 Be 4Gotten). The series, which adapts the popular “boys love” genre, is top-billed by Tony Labrusca (ML) and newcomer JC Alcantara.
With confirmation that the series will, in fact, premiere on June 24, 2020, fans are eager for a trailer – to which Black Sheep alluded will come this weekend.
Details are sparse regarding the story; we’ll update this article once the trailer drops. But fans should take recluse in the fact that Vargas has directed 2 Cool 2 Be 4Gotten (2016) and Lisyun Qng Geografia (2014) – both of which earned many accolades in their respective festivals.
Though initially codified rather simply, BL series like Hello, Stranger (and Jun Lana’s Gameboys) have gone beyond the mold of cutesy gay-cum-queer love stories for a presumed female audience.
