It's been three years since the "L Word" aired its last episode and seven since "Queer as Folk" finished its run, and some of the folks involved with those shows are pitching their a new TV show featuring a gay, multi-ethnic ensemble cast. The show's location and name is "DTLA," and its creators says it's like "Queer As Folk" meets "Swingers."

So far the creators have been able to film six episodes of the scripted show, but the self-financed project is asking for more mula on Kickstarter so that it can "complete post-production and a few pick-ups on the series" for its premiere in April. The creators have put up a trailer on the show that we've embedded above.

But before we go any further and get your hopes up too high, we should mention that the show is set to air on OUTtv, which happens to be a channel in Canada. That's right, downtown denizens won't be able to see the show set in their own 'hood...for now.*

*UPDATED 12/28: We got an e-mail from DTLA's Executive Producer Larry Kennar (that's also posted below in the comments) letting us know that once the Kickstarter project is funded, the show will be premiering in the United States in Fall 2012. We'll keep you posted!
