Monday Morning Productions has launched its online campaign to fund Season Two of the popular web series “He's With Me”. The series is directed by Broadway performer Sebastian La Cause (Rocky Horror, Chicago, Once Upon a Mattress), the award-winning creator/director/star of the web series “Hustling”.

Created by and starring Jason Cicci, “He's With Me” observes the stumbling blocks inherent in navigating the waters of modern manhood. In the series' first season, we met straight ad-man Ted Adams (Bradford How) who formed an unlikely friendship with gay theatre critic, Martin Adams (Cicci). Newlyweds Eddie (John Cramer) and Val (Darcie Siciliano) dealt with juggling their careers as the prospect of creating a family loomed large while jack of all trades, Benny Costa (Ryan Duncan of Broadway's Shrek and Altar Boyz) provided guidance and comedic irritation.

As the first season came to a close, all seemed to be going right for Martin, finding his footing as a director after losing his job. Ted had received a promotion and began dating the lovely Henny (Veronica Reyes-How) and Eddie and Val seemed content to remain just Eddie and Val after a pregnancy scare. In the cliffhainging finale, Benny professed his love for Martin while Ted's old flame Julie made a very unexpected visit.

“In the first season, I'm happy to say that our audience really responded to the friendship between Martin and Ted,” says creator Jason Cicci. “These guys discovered that they really could lean on each other at a particular stage in their lives…beyond 30. It's been great to tell a story like that. In the next season, we'll see that friendship flourish as both men face questions about love, career and what happens next. I've also incorporated Eddie's journey into the show much more. His exploration of life will completely baffle Val, who must also confront her inner feelings about what she wants out of life. Benny will also have an “aha”
moment that will not disappoint! It's also been so much fun having Veronica's Henny become a series regular. Her real-life husband/co-star agrees!”

“He's With Me” premiered on YouTube at youtube.com/user/HWMtheseries in June 2013. The show currently has over 2000 subscribers and more than 102, 000 views. “He's With Me” has been nominated for many awards and has been named an Official Selection by the Indie Series Awards, LA Web Fest, the Rome Web Awards, and both the Seattle and Denver Gay & Lesbian Film Festivals.
