The 3 Bits is a gay web series that is written and directed by Max Freeman and Margaret Singer. The episodes are divided up by the three main characters — which are three siblings — so you can see the story unfold from their unique points of view. Two of the sibs are gay, while one is straight.
They’re already facing controversy with one scene featuring someone snorting cocaine off a baby resulted in a call from the actual police.
“They were worried that we were endangering a child. [An officer] called and said that he wanted to clarify that it was not a criminal investigation, it was a inquiry. But he repeated this five times and the more he said it, the more I felt like I needed to call a lawyer.”
