Mike Kelly, creator of the CBS summer series Swingtown, a drama about partner-swapping couples living in 1970s suburbia, is developing BiCoastal for Showtime, another show that will explore relationships, marriage and sexuality. The show will center on a successful man who struggles to find balance between family life with his kids in Los Angeleles as he falls in love with a man in New York.
“It has a lot of the watermarks of things I love to write about — people with secrets and high-stakes love lives,” Kelley said.
It’s unclear what this means for Swingtown, which CBS has yet to make a decision about. In comparison to that show, however, which was based on Kelley’s childhood memories of his parents and their swinger friends, he says that BiCoastal will have a “bit of a harder edge and heightened sense of drama.”
