Creators-stars of TV's 'This Close' make Hollywood listen
LOS ANGELES — Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman have something to say about friendship, heartache and finding one's place in the world in "This Close."
The creators and stars of Sundance Now's comedy-drama are now sharing another aspect of life: What it's like to be deaf while grappling with the familiar challenges of young adulthood.
Stern and Feldman are both deaf. They nurtured their series idea from a Kickstarter-funded campaign to webisodes to a 2017 Sundance Film Festival episodic-shorts showcase entry whose potential impressed Sundance Now general manager Jan Diedrichsen.
The six-episode run debuts Wednesday on Sundance Now.
