Sharrod Williams' Award-Winning Web Series, NEIGHBORS Released on YouTube

Created by, written by, and starring Sharrod Williams (Cats, Tuck Everlasting, Hamilton - Chicago), NEIGHBORS is a seven-episode web-series that celebrates love, friendship, people of color, and the Queer experience.

The series tells the story of recently unemployed actors and best friends Sharrod and Joey, as they navigate pandemic life, new interracial relationships, and a secret that threatens their friendship for good.

Season 1 of NEIGHBORS is now available to stream on YouTube. The series also includes an after show called "KeeKee Giggle" where Executive Producer, Sharrod Williams chats with the cast and crew about the story, their characters, and behind the scenes moments. NEIGHBORS is the first brain child of Williams' multi-media brand, Cocoa Dusted Productions.

The cast includes Williams and Rosario, with Christopher Rice (Hamilton - Tour, The Book of Mormon, Pretty Woman), Matthew Petrucelli (Shakespeare's Globe, Edinburgh Fringe), Gizel Jimenez (Wicked, Avenue Q), Brandon Nase (Cats - Tour, The Black Clown), Elisabeth Willis (The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey), Shaunice Alexander (Bandstand - Tour), Juan Caballer (West Side Story - Chicago Lyric), and Amanda Serrano (In The Heights - Park Playhouse).

NEIGHBORS recently won a two prestigious Awards of Merit: Special Mention from The IndieFEST Film Awards. The awards were given under the categories of Web Series and LGBT.

Williams says, "I mainly set out to create a piece of art that amplifies and brings some normalcy to the queer experience as told on the screen. My NEIGHBORS family and I were focused on simply growing as artists and humans. To be receiving recognition is an added blessing and a wonderful affirmation to keep going, glowing, and elevating together."
