FRESH OFF THE "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE" SPOOF, LOGO ANNOUNCES PREMIERE DATE FOR "FIRE ISLAND"

New Docuseries From Kelly Ripa And Mark Consuelos To Premiere Thursday, April 27th At 8:00 PM ET/PT On Logo

NEW YORK, NY - March 14, 2017 - Fresh off the hilarious spoof on "Saturday Night Live," Logo announced today that "Fire Island," the highly anticipated new unscripted series, will premiere on Thursday, April 27th at 8:00 PM ET/PT. "Fire Island" follows a group of young professionals living together in a beachfront share house for the summer as they search for the romance, temptation and thrills that have brought the LGBTQ community to the island for decades.

The previously announced cast of "Fire Island" includes:

Khasan (IG:@khasanb84) - A dancer on break from his successful career after performing with pop legends like Beyoncé, Rihanna and Lady Gaga. He invites his friends to Fire Island to help him decide if he should move from Los Angeles to New York to be with his boyfriend.

Jorge (IG:@jorgebustillos) - After leaving his boyfriend and career as a doctor behind in Venezuela, Jorge moved to New York City to work as a marketing strategist. He goes to Fire Island to have an adventure of a lifetime with his best friend, Khasan.

Brandon (IG: @brandonosorio) - Photographer and NYU student Brandon is full of life and ready for any adventure. He is on the hunt for love during his first summer on Fire Island.

Cheyenne (IG: @thecheyenneparker) - Entrepreneur and model Cheyenne brings his fiery and passionate personality to the beach house. While launching his brand he must navigate the island's temptations.

Justin (IG: @justintrusso) - The established NYC artist is using his trip to Fire Island as a way to break out of his shell and find new inspiration. With all the adventures the island has to offer, Justin tries to navigate it all without losing focus on his new boyfriend.

Patrick (IG: @pattymac42) - Rather than lounge away the summer, Patrick is spending his time on Fire Island working and using his time to figure out his next step post heartbreak. He also stirs the pot with his housemates with his eccentric, "no-backing-down" personality.
