About this show: When Felix (a fastidious news writer) and Oscar (a sloppy sportswriter) both find themselves suddenly single, they become roommates to thwart loneliness and save money. Within days, their opposing natures have them at each other’s throats in a hilarious story that will ring true to anyone who’s ever found a great friend in their total opposite (or lived with a roommate!)
