Billings and Los Angeles comedian, Lukas Seely, is taking his “Dear Future Wife” series seriously.

He is turning the comedic column, which has been appearing on social media for a year, into a YouTube show, featuring many Billings people, including McLovin’ from Hot 101.9.

Filming wrapped last month after Seely flew L.A. comedian and director Cat Rhinehart to Billings to shoot five episodes. The web series debuts on Tuesday, May 6, on Seely’s YouTube channel. A trailer is available at: www.lukasdude.com.

The letters were started by Seely as a way to deal with a painful break-up. About a year ago, he started putting them up on Facebook and they took off immediately.

“Most of those letters were based on real-life things of mine. I would sit there and think of things to write about, just a note to my future wife,” Seely said.

His parents, his 9-year-old nephew Ethan, a barista at City Brew – they’re all in the series. Seely is also using music in the series from another Montana native, Guthrie Brown, who is living in Nashville and performing alt-country music.

“We are opening it up with something really goofy,” Seely said. “It’s something I’ve done in my stand-up show. People are always asking me to teach them to say something in 'your language.' I tell them they are saying something and it’s actually something else.”

Rhinehart won three awards for her web-based series, available at www.mysuperoveractiveimagination.com

“It’s a great way to put yourself out there. It’s so much better than a resume,” Rhinehart said. “It’s been fun working with Lukas.”
