Outland is a comedy series about a gay science fiction fan club and the lives, loves and never-ending dramas of its five members.
There’s Max, insecure and looking for love; the sexually-adventurous, muffin-baking Andy; Rae, the moral centre and unofficial head of the group; the high-camp, high-maintenance Fab; and the wealthy but socially-inept Toby. It’s an odd, and often dangerous combination of personalities.
The five of them are forced to meet in each other’s homes when they are unceremoniously evicted from a larger science fiction club after Andy accidentally sets someone on fire. This new intimacy reveals parts of their lives that are far too personal for a club meeting.
The group’s stated purpose is to “explore the infinite and varied concepts and ideas behind the worlds of speculative fiction through discussion and debate”. Or, in other words, to sit around watching videos. Whichever way you put it, neither of these aims is ever achieved. Every meeting collapses into chaos as the weaknesses within the group are exposed. Relationships are destroyed and hilarity ensues as secrets and skeletons come crashing out of the closet.
As the meetings become more unstable, a decision has to be made – are they willing to come out of the closet as a group or is it time they went their separate ways? Will science fiction save them all?
Outland is a series about belonging, no matter who you are, and how everyone searches to find a place to fit in.
