Kanan steals every scene he is in the new eight-episode digital drama series, and it affords him the opportunity to flex his acting muscles. In Studio City, Kanan plays Sam Stevens, who is an actor in the series that subsequently plays Dr. Pierce Hartley in the fictional Hearts on Fire, America’s second-highest-rated daytime drama.
Many fans and viewers can relate to this story and its moving message. It is a great show-within-a-show. Kanan shines in his scenes opposite his ruthless producer Gloria (played by Carolyn Hennessy), and Violet (played by Patrika Darbo), among others. Kanan certainly deserves a 2020 Daytime Emmy nomination for “Outstanding Lead Actor in a Digital Drama Series” for his acting work.
Most recently, Studio City earned 12 Indie Series Awards nominations proving that it is a true force to be reckoned with.
Digital Journal’s Markos Papadatos chatted with Sean Kanan about his idea and inspiration behind Studio City.
