John Onieal and Jimmy Fowlie are the creator and star, respectively, of Bridesman, which, after its premiere at Outfest LA on Aug. 14, will be the first original scripted series from Grindr. The series will be six episodes averaging about 10 minutes each that will be hosted on the app and, hopefully, on another platform in the future. Fowlie, who has appeared in episodes of “The Other Two” and “2 Broke Girls,” plays Terry, a single gay man who returns to his hometown to be a bridesmaid—or “bridesman”—for his childhood best friend. However, as someone who rejects the concept of marriage and happens to be sexually attracted to the groom, his agenda is actually sabotage—ideally accomplished by sleeping with the groom himself.
