The folks over at 82893 Productions are moving forward with more projects. Namely, they are working on the first official season of Just Us Guys, a comedy/drama web series about Scott, a gay dad, who has a best friend relationship with his straight son, Max [think Gilmore Girls with guys] that is slated to consist of 13 episodes, each 10 minutes long, set for a March 2014 release as well as working on Elsie, a spin-off web series from Just Us Guys that is slated to consist of roughly 7 episodes, each set to be about 1 to 5 minutes long.

Just Us Guys, the prequel episodes, have been screened at the San Diego International Comic-Con Independent Film Festival this past July and at the first Salt Lack City (Utah) Comic-Con Film Festival in September. The Just Us Guys folks will also be participating in a panel at Bent-Con this coming Saturday, November 9 at PM.
