Work In Progress is done! The six-part, half-hour comedy series written by, directed by, and starring Tay Barrett, premieres next Friday, April 27, on LGBT subscription streamer Here TV.

In the series, a fictionalized version of Barrett pursues a new career as a “documentarian sociologist,” interviewing farmers, strippers, musicians, scientists, painters, professors and others about why they work in their professions. The ensemble cast includes Michele Lee (Knots Landing), Philip Morris (Kramer’s lawyer in Seinfeld) — and Barrett’s real-life parents, Christopher Barrett and Anne Schedeen (Alf).

Barrett previously produced the nine-episode comedy web series Tiny Nuts, in which recent college graduates “try to negotiate the challenges of adult life,” one of which is a chihuahua. You can find Tiny Nuts on Hulu or YouTube. Here’s episode one:

Barrett is also preparing two docuseries – Inside the Rainbow and Queer Family Tree – for Here TV debuts later this year.

Here TV, which features a wide variety of LGBT movies, series, documentaries and shorts, costs $7.99 a month, with a seven-day free trial. You can also see several movies and series episodes for free without subscribing, including all six episodes of the anthology series Falling for Angels.

Here TV is available online, through Amazon Prime, and on iOS, Android, Fire TV and Roku. For more information, visit here.tv.

Other LGBT subscription streaming services include Revry TV ($4.99/month, one-month trial) and Qreel ($9.95/month).
