Some Assembly Required Star Kolton Stewart Wins Young Artist Award

The Thunderbird Group of Companies are congratulating Kolton Stewart on his win at the 36th annual Young Artist Awards in Los Angeles last night. Kolton was nominated and won in the Best Performance in a TV Series – Leading Young Actor category for his role as Jarvis Raines on YTV’s Some Assembly Required. 

The Young Artist Awards are a non-profit organization that honors excellence in youth performers, and to provide scholarships for young artists who may be physically and/or financially challenged. The 36th Annual Young Artist Awards took place on the evening of March 15th, 2015 at the Empire Ballroom, Sportsmen’s Lodge Hotel Studio City, California.

Some Assembly Required is a Canadian comedy series created by Dan Signer (“A.N.T. Farm,” “Mr. Young”) and Howard Nemetz (“Mr. Young,” “The Suite Life of Zack & Cody”) and is produced by Thunderbird Films. It tells the story of Jarvis Raines (Kolton Stewart), an average teenager who becomes a boss overnight after he sues a toy company over a defective chemistry set that blows up his house. Jarvis’ first act as CEO of Knickknack Toys is to recruit a diverse group of kids from his high school to help him run the company. Some Assembly Required was recently acquired by Netflix, and is slated for a summer release. Netflix will premiere the series in all territories this year, except in Canada, where it currently airs on YTV.

A brand new episode of Some Assembly Required returns tonight, with Cardboard Box on YTV at 7pm.
