EPISODE ONE (2/14/15)

SUMMARY:  When aspiring writer Trevor finds himself with writer's block when trying to write about a man visiting a prostitute, his annoying and degenerate hipster friend Tom - who pretends he's British despite the fact that he just spent two years studying there - suggests that Trevor actually sleep with a prostitute himself.  Tom suggests this knowing full well that Trevor is in a relationship.  Trevor floats Tom's idea - apparently the latest in a string of terrible ideas from Tom - to his girlfriend Bonnie, an actress, saying it would only be for the art.  Bonnie counters that maybe she should sleep with Colin, her smolderingly handsome co-star who is playing Brick to her Maggie in a production of "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof."  Trevor, to her shock, accepts - but only if he can watch.  Since it's for her art, she needs an audience.  And to sleep with Colin in character.  Bonnie is taken aback, but agrees.  When Trevor reports all this to Tom, Tom manages to convince Trevor to invite him to watch, since one person isn't really an audience...

Sleazy Tom (Tom Blank) listens to Trevor (Joe Boothe) talk about his writer's block. Bonnie (Alexa Alemanni ) listens to her friend Kelen (Beth Schwab) talk about her bad dating experiences. Despite the wide open hand gesture, she's actually talking about something very small. Trevor and Bonnie negotiate the terms of their sleeping with other people.  For art's sake.

EPISODE TWO (4/11/15) - PLAYOFFS ROUND 1!

SUMMARY:  Trevor propositions hooker Savannah, but she's an undercover cop, and Trevor is arrested.  Meanwhile, Bonnie has no problem convincing her co-star Craig to sleep with her.

Savannah (Rebecca Larsen) listens disinterestedly as Trevor (Colin Willkie) tells her he's only sleeping with her for the art. A happy moment before Savannah reveals her true colors. Craig (Rick Steadman) is only moentarily taken aback when Bonnie (Bonnie Kathleen Ryan) suggests they sleep together as part of their rehearsal process for "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Tom (Guy Picot) is as unphased as ever by the trouble his suggestions have caused for others.
