Every couple has their fights. Some of them are petty arguments. Some of them are crazy explosions. Eventually, some couples end up seeking help with therapists and psychologists. And they have tough jobs.

In the new web series, Smothered, it stars Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara as a gay couple seeking help and can’t seemingly resolve their differences.

Here’s the official synopsis:

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, and a fluid dog.

LRM Online’s Gig Patta spoke with actors Jason Stuart and Mitch Hara in creating and starring in the web series. We discussed the origination of the show, writing the scripts, having guest stars, and the future of the series.
