Family is a web-based sitcom based on the real life of filmmaker Terisa Greenan, who has been in a polyamorous relationship with two men for many years. It takes place in Seattle and follows the lives of Gemma, Ben and Stuart, who all live together. Gemma is partnered with both men (the men are just friends) and everyone can also date others. Two episodes go online a month, and the series is also on YouTube. It deals with life as a triad, in which Gemma worries about the neighbors and what others think of her, how weirded out they are by other polyamorists at times, dating, and dealing with disapproving parents.
