A carefully crafted and honed character designed to protect myself. To hide myself from the world.” The docuseries follows Smith’s attempt to lose 20 pounds in 20 weeks, the weight that he gained during the pandemic. “This is the body that carried me through an entire pandemic and countless days grazing through the pantry.
