Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

DTLA was originally made as a movie.[1] The U.S.'s two main LGBT cable channels were not enthusiastic about the project; here! passed on the project and Logo was initially non-committal.[17] Brad Danks, COO of OUTtv said, "He called us because he had heard from people in the U.S. that we were doing good things in Canada with the service."[17] After screening a rough cut of the movie for executives of OUTtv they commissioned a series instead.[1] It was originally expected that the series would premiere on OUTtv in the late spring of 2012.[18] On January 25, 2012 Kennar created an account on Kickstarter.com for the series, to secure the remaining required financing via crowd funding.[19] In 6 days 50 people had pledged a total of $4762.[1] On February 21, 2012 it was announced that they had surpassed their target of $25000.[20] In April 2012 it was announced that the premiere of DTLA would be delayed until after the launch of OUTtv's HD channel which would be coming in a few months.[21] In September 2012 it was announced that DTLA had been acquired by Logo.[22] DTLA is the first series funded in part via Kickstarter to receive domestic and international distribution.[17] Distribution outside of Canada and the U.S. is being handled by OUTtv.[21]
