Stoopid Ambitious cultivate a library full of stories about BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and people of color), LGBTQTIA+ individuals (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer or questioning, intersex, and asexual), disabled persons, and otherwise marginalized characters, especially those found at the cross streets of those identities.
The narratives promoted at Stoopid Ambitious go beyond tokenism and “diversity” quotas and tell rich and fully realized stories about rich and fully realized people all too frequently underrepresented in mainstream entertainment. Read more about it in our latest blog post.
A group of friends in one living space - it’s been done before, but never like on PRETTY DUDES. The boundary-breaking and award-winning* digital dramedy created by Chance Calloway is willing to look at race, gender constructs, sexuality, and all intersections of life in a comedic examination of what it is to be a millennial in today's America.
In our first season, meet the "cosmetic genetics;" model Sunji (Yoshi Sudarso), lothario Ellington (Xavier Avila), brusque Jay (Tae Song), gamer Alexander (Kyle Rezzarday), brokenhearted Zario (Bryan Michael Nuñez), and their neighbor Eagle (Olivia Thai). When Zario breaks up with his boyfriend, the Dudes enter a high-stakes bet to find new romantic prospects for him.
PRETTY DUDES exists to show the world the way it truly is, in humor and in heartache, with love despite our differences and hope despite our circumstances. We continue to express, in front of and behind the camera, that we see ourselves best when we dare to see each other.
