New York, New York (PRWEB) November 04, 2012

New York filmmakers Josh Sugarman and Brandon Yankowitz have joined together to bring us "Man Man Beaver", the subversive, groundbreaking new comedy series produced by YaSu Media and starring Sam Seder, Nathan Lee Graham and legendary comedian Tom Arnold as Beaver.  "Man Man Beaver" is the story of a Bi-racial Gay Couple and an angry and disorderly Beaver who marry (yes, all three of them) and become entangled with the world of problems facing such a diverse partnership. "Man Man Beaver" launches in preview internet-wide as of November 2, 2011 with episodes 1-2 and the series trailer is available on http://www.manmanbeaver.org and at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eNiNwnweDnM&feature=youtu.be.

"Man Man Beaver" is created by producing partners Josh Sugarman and Brandon Yankowitz, who worked together previously on the indie feature TROPHY KIDS. In the new series, following California's legalization of gay marriage and, logically then, every conceivable sexual pairing and so-called perversion, a “couple” comprised of two gay men and a man-sized, cigar-smoking talking beaver relocate into the state to finally live openly and take on idiocy and narrow-minded buffoonery each week… all while surviving the unique challenges of their married life and tackling issues that only an animated satire series can handle. 

"We hear a lot of old men on TV shouting about how equal marriage - gay marriage - is just one tiny step from polygamy and bestiality," Sugarman and Yankowitz said.  "We could never figure out what the hell they were talking about so we decided to animate it to see what that would look like.  After animating it, we still don't know what the hell they are talking about."

They added:  "We realize that this show might be offensive to certain groups but to them we say: rest assured, we still think of the beaver as the most diligent worker in the animal kingdom."
 
Sugarman and Yankowitz are producing the web series with an eye towards placement on a major cable network similar to the success of "Sanctuary" (Syfy) which started life as a ground-breaking web series.

A project with a purpose, "Man Man Beaver" is as much about supporting the struggle for equal rights across the nation as it is about being funny, fresh and subversive every single week. As abrasive and no-holds-barred as Tom Arnold's portayal of the Beaver is, one thing is certain: when the chips are down, he really gives a dam.

Creator/Executive Producer Josh Sugarman
Josh Sugarman began writing for the screen while working as a young progressive political staffer in Boston, working alongside LGBT candidates and organizations like Mass Equality. 

It wasn't until years later, when he was half-way through his law school tenure, that he began focusing on a life in film, cross-enrolling in Columbia University's graduate film school and later forgoing a legal career to co-found YaSu Media and direct the award-winning TROPHY KIDS, his feature directorial debut (starring Ryan Eggold and David Gallagher).  Prior to TROPHY, Sugarman wrote and directed two widely distributed shorts for the progressive non-profit TruthThroughAction.org.  Recently, he's combined his legal education and passion for film as a volunteer with the Volunteer Lawyers for the Arts. He's a graduate of Brandeis University and Columbia University and currently lives in New York where he's expanded into television and commercial work while preparing to shoot his follow-up feature DEAR FRIENDS, WITH LOVE this spring. He's represented by Don Buchwald & Associates and Bohemia Group.
