Channel 4 Acquires Cult Comedy ‘Rick and Steve’

article_image-41.phpChannel 4 International, part of the Digital Rights Group, has announced a significant UK acquisition for the cult comedy ‘Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple In The World. The series will premier in the UK on digital channel E4 in Autumn 2008, ‘Rick & Steve: The Happiest Gay Couple In The World’ is a ground-breaking 6 x 22 minute animation, which takes the viewer on a whirlwind ride through modern domestic bliss in the gayest of gay ghettos, West Lahunga Beach. It features the voice talents of Alan Cumming (‘The L Word’, ‘X2’), Peter Paige (‘Queer As Folk’), Margaret Cho (‘I’m The One That I Want’), Billy West (‘Futurama’) and Wilson Cruz (‘Party Of Five’, ‘He’s Just Not That Into You’).

As one fan put it: “Holy Crap this show is absolutely hysterical! I don’t mean it will occasionally make you smile or chuckle here and there – this show made me guffaw; which I rarely do these days.

Who would have possibly guessed that a show about gay and lesbian animated Legos living in the gay friendly town of West Lahunga Beach would turn out to be the complete laugh riot that it is.
