Derrick Briggs brings in new faces and new flavors to the show constantly bring a freshness rebirth with each season and each video. ADTV tackled topics that grip viewers from jump like: Why Gay Relationships Don’t Last, Dating Me, Partying and Drugs, Open Relationships, Recession Living, and Sex Parties.  His cast has included the talents of Ryan B. Drake, Matthew Barrett, J’Nara Corbin, Bry’Nt (Gay Hip Hop Artist), LastO, Bryan, Dustin, Ralphie, Metrell, Paris, and more.
