The long-awaited EPISODE 2 is finally here
Dyke Central is web series which Florencia Manóvil, the writer, director and producer of the series says that the team behind it created as they were “frustrated by the lack of representation of queer people of colour in the media”. The show is dramatic and funny as it takes on the lives of Alex and Gin, two butch roommates just living their lives and trying to navigate their relationships and friendships and day to day happenings. It’s the sort of show in which the plot itself isn’t very remarkable – you could imagine it being broadcast on your TV – but its characters identify as such that most networks would be unlikely to give this one a chance.
‘Dyke Central’ is an Oakland-based dramedy that centers around 30-something butch best friends and roommates Alex and Gin. The pilot episode sees Alex and Gin scrambling to find a new roommate to ensure that Jackie, Alex’s girlfriend, doesn’t move into Dyke Central, while Bay Area newcomer Fabiana sets out to discover the real Oakland.
