Inspiration: Inspired by the life of Anne Sostman and her twenty-plus roommates over the last five years of living in L.A. pursuing her dream of becoming a professional actress/producer/writer/you get the picture, as opposed to working a corporate 9-5 day job.
Other Info: "Domestic Partners" is a sarcastic, quick-witted comedy focusing on the lives of 4 roommates, Regan, Charles, Natalie and Landon. Regan, an awkward social outcast with very few friends who was born with a silver spoon in her mouth (a STERLING, silver spoon) and never comfortable with her servant filed, every need met childhood, abandons her parentıs money while in college. Wanting to live a ³normal² life she discovers that she has the Midas Touch, when after graduating, she and her boyfriend create a new, hot website, which turns them into dotcom millionaires. Regan is broken-hearted when her boyfriend chooses to embrace his newfound wealth, driving her into the isolation of her oversized home. The only break in her depression is the time she spends gazing and fantasizing about the hot next-door neighbor guy. In an effort to slowly reemerge into society, and going totally against her motherıs advice, she advertises for three roommates, setting up the foundation for the series. She is joined in the house by Charles, a Cal Tech, summa cum laude genius who would rather play drums in his garage band and get stoned than utilize his supersized IQ for anything meaningful. The big question on everyoneıs mind, and in the house betting pool is, not only when Charles will break the 300 lbs. mark (very soon), but if, or when heıll come out of the oversized closet (who knows). Natalie, a sweet, sincere, insecure, obsessive-compulsive culinary prodigy who really wants to be a comedian but just isnıt that funny, is a girl from the Inland Empire (California) but youıll never hear her admit it. Landon, a Colorado State University graduate in veterinary medicine, has chucked his veterinary practice, packed up his car and come to Hollywood to peruse his dreams of being a movie star. Immediately finding himself attracted to Natalie AND Regan, starting his life in L.A. seems too good to be true. This foursome creates strong bonds and friendships with lots of sexual tension and curiosity, to support each other in their pursuit to overcome their personal shortcomings and reach their individual goals.
