Web Series on Disinherited Gay Twins Triumphs at L.A. Shorts Awards

Poor Us

Poor Us won big at the L.A. Shorts Awards.

The production about disinherited gay fraternal twins took home Best Web Series at the monthly awards competition based in the entertainment capital.

Created by gay actor and comedian Jeremy Dozier (Dirty Girl, iCarly), the series centers on the lives of the brothers after they are "cut off by their filthy rich father."

Afterward, they "struggle to rebuild their lives in hell, or as it's better known: Van Nuys," a neighborhood in the San Fernando Valley region of Los Angeles, according to a release forwarded to The Advocate.

Poor Us, a black comedy, stars Dozier as Tanner and Matthew Bunker as his brother, Max. Billy Hutto portrays Chance, Max's boyfriend.

The winning episode, "Just Rob Shit," was released Tuesday on YouTube. New episodes debut every Tuesday. 

In addition to Best Web Series, Poor Us also won for Best Cinematography (Molly Becker), Best Editing (Tucker Penner), Best Actor (Jeremy Dozier), and a Gold Award in Directing for Mykee Del Mundo at the L.A. Shorts Awards for October 2019.
