“Smothered” Co-star Jason Stuart Wins Best Lead Actor – Comedy Honors at Hollywood’s 12th Annual Indie Series Awards

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Jason Stuart, Co-Star of the hit dark comedy "Smothered" won the Best Lead Actor-Comedy honors this week at the 12th Annual Indie Series Awards ceremony April 7 at the Colony Theater in Burbank.

Accepting the award, Jason said, "I have had a long winding career with lots of ups and downs. When I was a kid growing up, I never thought that a gay man could win an award from his peers for playing a gay man! All I ever really wanted was to be a character actor." He also thanked his mother for her love & support with the hashtag #I Don’t Live with My Mother, I Live Next Door "My co-star Mitch Hara, and the entire cast and crew, all share in the honor; we have so much fun working together it’s exciting to see the show growing legs."

In its second season, "Smothered" is an edgy, dark comedy about a hateful gay couple who can’t stand each other but can’t afford to get divorced. The "boys" attempt to salvage their hideous relationship in therapy hell. It’s a hysterical, touching, psychotic exploration of love, crashing to bits like cheap china from the Olive Garden. It’s also a celebration of diversity, Little People, Transsexuals, Asians, Blacks, Whites, Jews, Closet Cases & a fluid dog. The show streams on Amazon Prime, YouTube, and at www.smotheredtv.com.
