A new sitcom
Being single in your mid-to-late thirties is never easy. 34 Jarrow Road is a house rented by the room. Lead tenant, Matt, is responsible for filling it. With one room left, he invites his recently separated friend Jennifer into the house of eccentric oddballs and misfits. The house is made up of: Matt, a depressive, anxious guy with a dry wit and a lot of love to give; Jennifer, a sassy but aloof 34 year old; Felix, a gothic 38 year old divorcee with two kids; Monty, an energetic, bubbly 25 year old student who has failed to find a place to live and Oscar; a childish mummy’s boy, possibly autistic, also around 25. Over series 1 they grow from five very different people into a dysfunctional family.
Housemates is a new sitcom written and created by James Long.
