'Real World' Hottie Danny Roberts Wants You to Come Downtown

When I briefly lived in the Little Tokyo section of downtown Los Angeles in the early '90s, the idea of a television show being set there -- much less a gay one -- seemed impossible. A lot has changed in 20 years, and now "L Word" producer Larry Kennar is bringing us "DTLA," a new series that follows a group of friends in Downtown Los Angeles as they deal with the breakup of lovers Lenny (Darryl Stephens) and Bryan (Matthew Stephen Herrick). The show will begin airing on Canada’s OUTtv in late spring, but because it's a DIY project, it looks like there's a KickStarter page looking for donations for a second season. (If there is a home for it in the U.S. I have not heard about it.)

What I find most interesting about the project, however, is the eclectic cast, which includes Danny Roberts ("The Real World"), Tiffany Pollard ("I Love New York"), William McNamara ("Doing Time on Maple Drive") and Leslie Jordan ("Will & Grace"). Guess which two starred in my '90s sexual fantasies -- hints HERE and HERE!

They ran out of other LA locales so why not downtown LA. Better then Signal Hill or Cerritos I guess.

Danny was my neighbor in Atlanta for a couple of years - really, really nice guy!
