Popular site Hulu has added Old Dogs & New Tricks to its vast library of streaming TV programs, replacing YouTube as online “network” for the hit web series.
“I’m honored to be on Hulu, ” says ODNT creator & actor Leon Acord. “And I’m thrilled that viewers can again watch individual episodes for free. We’re a web series again!”
Sales for the DVD have been strong, landing the show at #1 on Wolfe’s “Gay Top 10 Best Sellers” list for the crucial two weeks following Thanksgiving. It currently holds the #3 position.
Online, viewers can also stream the two-season package for rent, or purchase it for download at WolfeOnDemand.??
ODNT is the award-winning dramedy about four middle-aged gay best friends struggling to stay vital and relevant in youth-obsessed West Hollywood.? The show stars Acord, Curt Bonnem, David Pevsner and Jeffrey Patrick Olson.
The series has attracted impressive guest stars, including gay Olympian Greg Louganis, Patrick Bristow (Showgirls), Thom Bierdz (Young & the Restless),Terri Garber (Dynasty), gay theatre legend Michael Kearns, and Bruce L. Hart (Homewrecker).
Rutanya Alda (Mommie Dearest), Kathryn Leigh Scott (Dark Shadows) and Gloria Gifford (Halloween II) are slated to appear in the show’s third season, slated to begin shooting in March, with more names to be announced shortly.
Meanwhile,”ODNT: WeHo Horror Story,”? a 20-minute special set on Halloween, debuts early 2014. The special resolves the cliffhangers from Season 2 and sets the stage for the third season, which will premiere mid-2014.
“I keep getting asked ‘How did you do it?'” says Acord, about the show’s success. “But I really have no answer, other than we just try to make the best possible show we can. We’ve had no budget for ‘public relations.’ Its all been grassroots, and total trial and error!”
