SAVING RENT - Episode 11: Those damn immigrants
"Saving Rent" is a comedy about six unlikely roommates in Los Angeles who share a house in order to save rent. The house belongs to Mike, who bought the house when he moved out to LA with his musician girlfriend, Kelley. However, when Mike gets laid off, he convinces Kelley to get roommates to move in to help pay the mortgage. What he doesn't tell her, though, is that he lost his job, a secret that he continue to keep throughout the season. The couple finds four roommates: Paul, an actor from Canada, Suzie, a sixteen year-old runaway who pretends to be twenty-one, Tina, an aspiring adult film actress, and Chucho, a Latin immigrant who they think doesn't speak any English. After moving in together, they begin pursuing their own dreams in Los Angeles while hiding secrets from each other.
