Malcolm Gibson is a 27-year-old software engineer living in Oakland. When he gets dumped by his fiancé, he and his cousin devote themselves to creating the first successful dating app that uses musical taste to pair people. That’s the premise of Clouds, a new dramatic comedy series that follows Malcolm as he learns the ups and downs of both tech entrepreneurship and dating in the digital age. Clouds is created by local filmmakers Obatala Mawusi and Theo Hollingsworth, and stars a diverse cast of Bay Area actors. The creators are currently promoting the show’s pilot episode, which will premiere at The New Parkway (474 24th St., Oakland) on April 28 at 7 p.m. There will also be a pre-screening happy hour at the nearby Crooked City Cider (477 25th St.), where future fans can prematurely meet the cast and crew. Ticket proceeds will go toward finding a producer for the show so that the creators can complete the first season.
