When life gives you roommates, make friends. From the creators that brought you ‘Kelsey, the webseries,’ comes a comedy pilot about Timothy, Amy & Denise. Read about the decision to cut this down from a pilot to a short: http://www.congestedcat.com/blog/2017/3/21/revisiting-making-two-gays-a-girl-festival-recaps.
The idea for this pilot (turned short film) came about one day when CongestedCat team members Christina, Kelsey, and Chris were hanging out doing a promo shoot for an upcoming project. At the time, Christina and Kelsey were coming off the heels of critically acclaimed web series, “Kelsey,” and one of them made a joke that their next series should be a play on the three of them and their friendship. Who actually said the title first is debatable, but “Two Gays & a Girl” came out of someone’s mouth and they immediately fell in love with it and the idea of a series about a lesbian, a gay guy, and a straight girl as best friends and roommates. Soon enough Christina and Kelsey were mapping out the characters, the pilot and where the series could potentially go.
We feel it’s a fun spin on the typical roommates sitcom sub-genre, while being more true to life and representative of real contemporary groups of friends, especially living in New York (countering the heteronormative, whitewashed version mainstream media continues to perpetuate). We hope this no-budget pilot will garner enough interest to allow us to reboot it as a web series with a real budget and audience-driven momentum at some point in the future.
