COMING IN is a fantasy in eleven episodes starring Dylan Archambault as Mitchell, a confidently gay man who suddenly wakes up straight on his wedding day, and Natalie Krill (WYNONNA EARP’s Willa) as Mitchell’s best friend Margot. The series follows Mitchell as he transitions from one community into another. Producer Graydon Sheppard told CBC News: “It’s kind of a controversial subject and could be seen as pushing the wrong buttons…I think that it becomes clear in the series that we are definitely pro coming out and being able to be gay and being able to be yourself.” The series can be streamed on the CBC website in Canada. Everywhere else, COMING IN can be viewed on YouTube. (The last three episodes will be posted there on 19 December.)
