Gomes is a principal dancer in American Ballet Theatre who has been partnered with the venerable Diana Vishneva. James and David are looking for funding to complete the documentary by the end of the year.
Update on Be Good Johnny Weir Season 2 (from James via email) : It has already been delivered to the network. It is slated to air in the fall, but an exact air date has yet to be confirmed.
If it is already in the can, it does not look like Season 2 will cover Johnny's comeback.
