CONNOR & JAYDEN is centered around two high school juniors who meet coincidentally and fall in love. Extremely popular star football player CONNER TUCKER (played by actor Christian Barba) has a life changing day at school when, because of a broken leg, he signs up for a cooking class and meets school outcast JAYDEN SANSBURY (Ty Newcomb). The two high school boys are from different sides of the popularity clique and form a fast friendship which sparks a journey of self discovery.
CONNOR & JAYDEN is an innocent and romantic gay love story set in and around fictional Bueller High School – the drama is focused on a budding relationship, not a negative “coming out” experience, love triangle or a militant fight for tolerance/acceptance.
CONNOR & JAYDEN is both a short film and a proof-of-concept pilot designed to introduce a core storyline that is the basis of an 8-episode series currently written and ready for production at Harbor Heights Entertainment.
