THIRTY is a true-to-life TV series that delves into the life of a Black same-gender-loving couple whose seemingly perfect relationship is interrupted.

Director and Writer Anthony Bawn is known for producing unapologetic LGBTQ content based on true-to-life events. Bawn's next highly anticipated project is the ground-breaking TV series, "Thirty"

The "THIRTY" TV series premiered at Cinemark Baldwin Hills, in Los Angeles this past Wednesday.

The first of Thirty's seven-episode series pushes boundaries and explores the intricate lives of Tyrin and Khalil, a privileged Black gay couple forced to navigate an unexpected trial that threatens their bond. Based on the book, "The End of the Rainbow," by Dontá Morrison, THIRTY confronts same-sex love and relationships through a lens often ignored. The intersection of sexuality and spirituality is highlighted throughout this dramatic tale that exposes what happens when good intentions lead to unforgiveable results.

"We want to give the audience an opportunity to gain deeper insight into what led Morrison to tell his story, partner with me, and the themes explored throughout the series, and overall process of bringing THIRTY to life," said Bawn.
