Bunim/Murray Productions and OMG Productions have partnered on a series starring gossip writer Perez Hilton (pictured), to be called Gay Dads of New York. 

The reality docuseries is in development, with casting currently taking place. The project will follow Hilton, a single father, and a group of single and married gay dads, as they form a support group of fathers in New York City.

Suzy Unger at OMG Productions; Steven Grossman; Mario Lavandeira (Perez Hilton); and Bunim/Murray’s Jonathan Murray, Gil Goldschein and Scott Freeman all serve as executive producers.

“This show will give viewers the opportunity to get to know the real Perez Hilton and my family, as well as some other really dynamic gay dads, and the women that make up their support system,” said Lavandeira. “I am a recent transplant to New York City, looking for friends and open to – hopefully – love.”

“I immediately responded to the Gay Dads of New York concept because my partner and I were part of one of the first gay dads support groups in Los Angeles back in 1998,” added Jonathan Murray, chairman of Bunim/Murray Productions. “Whether it’s a single dad like Perez, or married gay dads, becoming a gay parent affects your relationships with family and friends, all of which will make fascinating stories.”
