Bashful A Web Series
Bashful is a lighthearted, funny, in-your-face, and smart web series set in Memphis, TN. It is centered around the character of Sebastian “Bash” Carruthers. The title is a play on words with his nickname Bash, as in, he is “full of himself”. Bash is unlucky in love, life, and relationships. He has a doting mother who ran his multiracial father off with her religious zealotry long before Sebastian was cognizant. Sebastian is pro-gay, pro-black, and anti-religious. He does not hate other races he just aligns with the part of his heritage that has been oppressed and taught to internalize self-hatred. He believes that sex, sexuality, particularly being gay, is inextricably a part of who we are.
