Peacekeepers is an LGBTQ Friendly Sci-Fi web series that is up for IndieWire’s Project of the Year and for good reason! The series describes itself as being inspired by Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Sherlock, and Doctor Who. It was co-created by Charlie Reeves, who works on Gotham, and stars Tommy Heleringer from The Outs, Jacques Mitchell, Madeline Wise, and Maria Makenna. I can honestly say this is one of the best web series I’ve seen in a long time – you can watch the first episode here and go vote for them for Project of the Year here.
Now let’s get to know them!
