Founded by the New Comb Interactive's (former We Love Soaps LLC) Roger Newcomb in 2009, the Indie Series Awards celebrate the best in independently produced, scripted entertainment created for the Web.
Indie series are to Network TV series what Independent Films are to mainstream movies; innovation and creativity thrive and fanatical followers are the norm.
The ISAs honor a genre that emphasizes artistic merit and social impact over corporate profits, however, the overall quality of the nominated shows is comparable to that of most TV sitcom or dramas—in fact, several past winners went on to partner with traditional television content providers.
This year's production team consists of We Love Soaps Editorial Director and Indie Series Awards founder Roger Newcomb, Indie Series Network director Kevin Mulcahy Jr., producer Susan Bernhardt from Leonian Pictures, and Serial Scoop Editorial Director Michael Goldberg.
Past nominated series represent the highest level of achievement in the genre--groundbreaking programs, created by entertainment industry professionals (many of them celebrities), that have been viewed over 100 million times.
Notable winners over the years include Robert Townsend, Cynthia Watros, Judd Hirsch, Cady Huffman, Richard Hatch, Sarah Brown, Martha Byrne, Joan Van Ark, Keith Powell, Jim Rash, Michele Lee, Diane Delano, Billy Dee Williams and many more!
The 8th Annual Indie Series Awards ceremony will be held on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, in Los Angeles.
