Fashion! New York City! Male models! Divas! Threesomes! All in a gorgeously shot new web series by director Jacob Mendel Brown starring Taylor Rosen, Stanley Simons, Victoria Beltran and Jae Ponder with cameos by NYC notables like nightlife legend Sophia Lamar, fashion editor Mickey Boardman and others.
Each six-minute episode is like a yummy piece of sour-sweet candy. You’re going to end up eating the whole bag.
Model Boy is a gritty drama exploring the lives of the wide-eyed young men lured into New York’s notoriously fickle high fashion modeling world. Sexually objectified, paid in little more than social prestige—which of these ‘male ingenues’ will parlay a moment of fleeting fame to achieve their dreams, and which will the industry chew up and spit out.

Episode 05 of Model Boy was just released today, and it’s the penultimate of the series. Check out what director Jacob Brown has to say about the latest episode and then watch it below:
“So we’re half way through the season now. Paris definitely has gotten a baptism by fire and it’s yet to be seen how that going to effect him. For Felix, things are really coming to a head. He’s trying desperately to hang on but it’s gonna be tough. Summer is sorta juxtaposed against all that, things are good and getting better, and Felix is starting to feel like an obligation. The finale is super exciting, all of this will really smash together in a pretty high octane way.”
