LGBTQ entertainers like country singer Steve Grand, “Mean Girls” star Daniel Franzese and “Desperate Housewives” and “Devious Maids” alum Alec Mapa are assembling for a new TV series.

“Falling for Angels” is a co-production between Pride Media, which publishes legacy queer magazine The Advocate as well as Out, and cable and streaming network Here TV. The series premieres Dec. 1 and will take a geographical and emotional look at Los Angeles.

Episode themes include same-sex love, health, heartbreak and sex positivity. Neighborhoods include Bel Air, Boyle Heights, Koreatown, Silver Lake and Malibu.

Kevin Spirtas (“Days of Our Lives”), Blake Young-Fountain (“The Skinny”), Johnny Kostrey (“Aquarius”), Calpernia Addams (“Soldier’s Girl”), Adrian Nunez (“30 Days with my Brother”) and Jason London (“Dazed and Confused”) also star.

“Here TV has engaged inspiring and diverse queer writers and directors, most of whom are queer men of color, to tell their stories … emotions and complex relationships that bind the queer community together,” producer Paul Colichman (“Gods and Monsters,” “Shelter”) said in a statement. He co-produces Emmy-nominated actor-producer David Millbern.

“Falling For Angels” will be available to stream on Here.TV, the Here TV app and its web home FallingForAngels.com.
