Los Angeles, CA, February 5, 2017 (Newswire.com) - Completely unknown at the time of its release in June, ‘Back Stabber’ became a breakout success, quickly drawing viewers by the masses with its societal commentary and record breaking budget. Created by 27-year-old openly gay actor and LGBT advocate Ryan Zamo, the shows controversial messages caused rejection from investors, taking over 7 years to produce season 1.
