Web Sitcom Pilot Review: Queers

“Come to think of it, I’ve never actually played bingo”

A teaser of what might be to come, this five minute pilot is an entry into the Raindance Dailymotion Web Series Pilot Competition, in which the winning short will receive a full series. Created, written, directed and produced by Guido Lippe, it features the fortunes of an ailing gay bar – for which WestFive Bar in Ealing stands in excellently – as its owners look for ways to perk up business. The main point of interest for me was familiar faces Adam Lilley (The King’s Speech) and Simon Wegrzyn (Grimm’s Tales) as the squabbling couple at odds over what lengths they should go to save the bar and sure enough they make an endearing pair. Lippe’s writing has its funny moments and it would be interesting to see how it would develop without the constraints and pressures of the competitive pilot environment so have a watch of it below and just like with Scottish independence (or otherwise) if you like it, vote for it!
