“SMOTHERED”, a Quirky Look into a Gay Couple’s Dysfunctional Relationship Debuts on Amazon Prime

A hilarious take on the hurdles facing a neurotic, bickering gay couple in therapy.

A little laughter at the expense of an off-beat middle-aged gay couple is the perfect recipe for a hysterical new rom-com. SMOTHERED, the comedy series starring Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara made its debut on Amazon Prime , and tells the story of Randy (Mitch Hara) and Ralph (Jason Stuart) - who also wrote and produced the series -  a gay couple navigating their way through couples therapy.

As the series unfolds through their uninhibited and often shocking therapy sessions, viewers discover how the couple of 20 years outrageously nit-pick and push each other’s buttons.   Rom-com fans will have a demented field day with season one featuring seven, irreverent short episodes of couple absurdity, mixed with indiscretion, love, occasional bliss, and water retention.

Jason Stuart (The Birth of a Nation) and Mitch Hara (Mutant Olive) harness their unique comedic talents and baggage to express their joint creativity and (separate) couples experience.  The dark comedy shines a glaring light on a longtime gay couple who can’t stand each other but can’t afford to get divorced.

SMOTHERED was brought to life by director, Terri Hanauer (Sweet Talk) and is part of Amazon Prime’s strategy to amplify the comedy side of LGBTQ voices and stories for a global audience.

"We are thrilled for the opportunity to partner with Amazon as we share our latest project, extending ourselves outside of the gay community, and making all kinds of people laugh - together," commented Stuart.  "SMOTHERED is also a celebration of diversity," Mitch chimed in, "One that includes Little People, Transsexuals, Asians, Blacks, Whites, Jews, Closet Cases, and a fluid dog. You’re welcome!"

SMOTHERED guest stars Dalila Ali Rajah (Criminal Minds), Erik Aude' (American Sniper), Clent Bowers (Little Fockers), Erika Ervin (American Horror Story), Helen Hong (Silicon Valley), Scott Krinsky (Chuck), Pancho Moler (Ray Donovan) and Carole Ita White (Laverne & Shirley).
