Just like his pals, twenty-something auto mechanic Adam enjoys beer, hockey and inappropriate bodily functions. But Adam also likes guys. A hilarious mash-up of man-child and coming-out comedies, “Fourth Man Out’ examines a small-town, blue-collar guy who lets his friends know he’s gay - and what happens when they try to help him find a boyfriend. Both rudely funny and daring in its exploration of the kind of gay man we rarely see on the big screen, this bawdy, crowd-pleasing comedy features Chord Overstreet (“Glee”) and Kate Flannery (“The Office”).

You've never met a guidance counselor like David Gold (writer-director-star Pat Mills), whose tequila-centered coping mechanisms raise fellow teachers' eyebrows even as he becomes a dark-horse favorite amongst the high school's angsty student populace. Plagued by his past career as a child actor and in denial of his current health issues (and sexual orientation), David takes on the monumental task of solving teenagers' problems with an unapologetically blunt, fun-loving attitude. Marked by razor-sharp writing and pitch-black humor, Mills's gleefully inappropriate comedy balances outrageousness with a hard look at the path toward self- acceptance.
Did you know this is ATLFF's first year accepting TV pilot and web series submissions? Out on Film showcases four web series in the program Web is the New Black, and you can see them all for 20% off the regular ticket price. "Ze Said She Said" stars its creator, Scott Turner Schofield, the first openly transgender actor in daytime television (Nick, The Bold and the Beautiful). You'll even get a chance to meet the writers in attendance.
