This Space for Rent
THIS SPACE FOR RENT is a half hour comedy television series about three roommates and their friends sharing a flat in downtown Vancouver, muddling through life with no parachutes, no guarantees, and almost no scruples. As the first quarter of their lives come to a close, Lucky and his friends ask the ubiquitous question: What next!?
S01:E01 - Pear Shaped World
Meet LUCKY CARROWAY, recent college-graduate and all-around great guy. Watch as the first-day of the rest of his life turns ugly as he loses his literary agent, his shot at greatness, and his will to live. One month has passed and LUCKY has officially become a shut-in. His steady diet of cigarettes, television, and sarcasm has made a profound dent in any potential he was showing as a young novelist of the times. He has elevated the in-animate neon pig sign ("PINKY") next-door to the level of a prized confidante. And his dwindling sense of selfworth is alienating the only thing he has left: his friends.
S01:E02 - Stain'd
When LUCKY and BARNABY get in an argument about whose turn it is to do the laundry, both parties plant their feet in the ground and refuse to give in. As the days go on and clothing begins to wear thin, the tested friendship becomes fodder for LUCKYs newest column about "The Stains of Life: those problems (and people) that we can't seem to wash out."
S01:E03 - Elvis Kwan Blows
The entire city of Vancouver has Olympic Fever, and a sizeable increase in the price of everything from parking to a cup of coffee, has LUCKY fuming. Searching for a way to channel his anger, LUCKY settles on his next column: "Why I hate the Olympics and everything to do with them."
