A series that looks at a newlywed gay male couple premiered on the Internet on Tuesday.

Husbands stars out actors Sean Hemeon (True Blood) as Brady Kelly, an out professional baseball player, and newcomer Brad Bell as Cheeks, an out actor. The newly dating couple heads to Las Vegas to celebrate the recent passage of a gay marriage law and wake up the following morning in a drunken stupor to discover they are a married couple.

Alessandra Torresani (Caprica, American Horror Story) plays Haley, the best friend.

Husbands is written and executive produced by Jane Espenson, whose credits include Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Caprica and the latest season of Torchwood.

The series' premiere titled Waking Up In Vegas can be seen at HusbandsTheSeries.com, where new episodes will be added twice a week (on Tuesdays and Thursdays) for the first eight weeks. (The premiere is embedded in the right panel of this page.)

In an interview with Marriage News Watch, Bell, a co-creator of Husbands, acknowledged that the show had the capacity to help the marriage equality movement but added that its main objective was to entertain viewers.

“I see myself as an activist like sixteenth. I mean it's incidental. I mean sure that's the idea. But that will come as a natural bi-product,” Bell said.

“I think if you set out with this intent to change the world, that your work could get too preachy or that it might turn people off or be propaganda. My intention is to make something that is universal. That people can relate to, that is different and fresh and represents a unique point of view. And yes, as a natural bi-product that will open minds and hearts.”

“It's important to forget the activist angle while we're doing the project but always know on some level that we understand that the goal is to open minds. We can't think about that all the time because that's all you think about and you loose the fun of it. Because the fun is actually what opens the minds,” Espenson added.
