Brothers James and Charles Winston live together in an apartment. Charles is a sports writer for a local paper and James is in real estate.
The two couldn't be more different, but they always have each other's backs. Their longtime best friends, Mitchell Ford and Dusty Canyon, share a place as well, since Mitchell's recent divorce left him without a home.
Dusty is a weatherman and Mitchell is a teacher.
The guys often frequent The Corner Pub, which is a local hang out spot.
