Sean Hayes in Lazy Susan Now on Demand

DOING NOTHING IS EXHAUSTING!
Most of us can probably relate right now.  A LOT OF TIME ON OUR HANDS!  I find myself trying to stay busy but exhausted at the end of the day. And I really did not do all that much.
Sean Hayes stars in this slice-of-life comedy about a woman on the edge with nowhere to go but over. Lazy Susan is a story about a spectacularly unmotivated cisgender woman for whom doing nothing is exhausting.

In Lazy Susan, Susan has always been the self-centered oddball in her family, who lazily skated through life with their grudging support until one day she wakes up to realize she’s middle-aged with no job, no relationship, and an increasingly estranged family.

She finally decides to take charge and turn things around, but never having done anything herself before, the struggle is real (and hilarious) as Susan becomes the woman she always wanted to be, all on her own.

“I think a lot of us are lazy Susans — have been or will become. There’s that question we all ask: ‘Who do you want to be?’ It’s not always easy,” Hayes tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue.

Sean explains  how Susan came about; “When I was 21, I got a call from my agent in Chicago. She said, “There’s an audition tomorrow to replace the white guy on In Living Color.” Jim Carrey was leaving. I grabbed all my wigs and props and characters of all shapes and sizes. One of the characters was Lazy Susan. A few years ago, someone brought up the character. And it was such a great metaphor for someone spinning out of control. A spinning lazy Susan, for someone who can’t get their life together. I love tragic characters, when you don’t know whether to laugh or not.”
