Star Trek: Voyager‘s Tim Russ has won an award for his work on Bloomers.
Russ and fellow director Henryk Cymerman won Best Director of a Comedy at the Indie Soap Awards held in New York City last week.
Bloomers, a web-based comedy about a “diverse group of friends finding new ways to love, work and laugh in downtown Los Angeles, was co-directed by Russ, and he had a part in the series as Mr. Adler, the “tough boss” of one of the Bloomers main characters.
“Mr. Adler is focused, determined, and curt,” said Russ. “His character is somewhat unpredictable in that when you expect him to say one thing, or react a certain way, he does the opposite. He is all about business, and just plows along to his objective no matter what you say to him. I like working on indie projects mainly because you often get a chance to play roles that you wouldn’t get to read for doing TV shows and in most big budget films.”
Bloomers was nominated for two awards: Best Actress in a Comedy (Fernanda Espíndola) and Best Director of a Comedy (Russ and Cymerman).
“The Indie Soap Awards, or ISAs, strive to honor the very best in scripted, serialized programming for the web and are presented annually by We Love Soaps in association with SFN.”
