A GRITTY DRAMA EXPLORING THE LIVES OF THE WIDE-EYED YOUNG MEN LURED INTO NEW YORK’S NOTORIOUSLY FICKLE FASHION MODELING WORLD.
The digital first season of Model Boy is about a literal and metaphorical love triangle. Felix (Taylor Rosen) is at or just past the peak of his career as a model. He has a wonderful girlfriend, Summer (Jae Ponder), who herself is a burgeoning pop-star. Just as he meets young Paris (Stanley Simons), a new boy on the New York model circuit, things begin falling apart for him, both financially and personally. Like so many boys who fall into male modeling, his success in the industry exists under the constant threat of being short lived. After Paris, Felix, and Summer spend a night together, their lives become messily entangled, while threatening to careen violently out of control.
All makeup in the show was done by M.A.C Professional Artists.
All actors were SAG and we followed union guidelines. And all of the male model characters are played by real male models, who are also rep’d actors. (Eg. Taylor Rosen is at VNY, and Stanley Simons at Next.)
Other fashion cameos include Mickey Boardman, Victor Glemaud, Sophia Lamar, Cole Mohr, David Graver, and Camilla Staerk.
