New comedy-drama Feral tells the story of Billy and Daniel, two 20-something queer artists living together in Memphis.
Throughout the series, the two navigate difficult relationships with lovers and friends all while trying to get a better sense of who they truly are as LGBT people.
The series comes from out indie filmmaker Morgan Jon Fox, who set out to create an authentic queer drama that captured the complexity and nuance of LGBT life.
“I knew that if I wanted to see the right stories out there, I should tell those stories,” he said in a recent interview with Out. “The real sadness of what Billy and Daniel go through is that they, or the people in their lives, need to help themselves, but they can’t. There’s something so heartbreaking in that.”
“I don’t judge these characters,” Fox added. “They learn how to lean on their friends to hold them accountable—often for the things they may not be able to admit about themselves.”
