About the Show

Off Centre is an American television sitcom created by Chris Weitz, Paul Weitz and Danny Zuker which revolves around the lives of two friends, British stud Euan Pierce and play-it-safe American Mike Platt after they move into the posh Hadley Building on New York's Centre Street.

The series aired in the USA on The WB from 14 October, 2001 to 31 October, 2002. There are 28 half-hour episodes in two seasons.

The series originally aired in South Africa on from 2 September, 2002 to 3 September, 2003. It later aired on DStv's Comedy Central channel. See "Seasons" below for seasonal broadcast dates and times.

Season 2 premiered on Comedy Central on Tuesday 30 July 2013, at 19h40. New episodes broadcast weekly. There are seven episodes in the second and final season.


Comedy auteurs Paul and Chris Weitz have stamped their randy brand of humour on such big-screen hits as American Pie and About a Boy. Their point of view came to the small screen for the first time in this unconventional buddy comedy.

A smooth talking, sophisticated and decidedly decadent Brit, Euan (Sean Maguire) is the yin to his conservative American friend Mike's (Eddie Kaye Thomas) yang.

Best friends and former roommates at Oxford, Euan's high-flying, fast-living, bed-hopping way of life has always driven Mike to moral high ground.

Now, as they move into a posh New York apartment at the famed Hadley on Centre building and begin their so-called adult lives, Euan is launching a meaningful career in investment banking while Mike's toiling in non-profit.

Their opposing views on the opposite sex are all the more glaring. Euan's constant skirt-chasing and disdain for all things monogamous makes Mike question his committed relationship with girlfriend Liz (Lauren Stamile).

As each tries to prove that his way is best, peccadilloes, predicaments and pranks force them to examine relationships from the other's viewpoint.

While Mike revels in playing the holier-than-thou role, Euan is haughty about the fact that he can practically smell the envy, but he appreciates having Mike around as his conscience.

Their good friend Chau (John Cho) works at a nearby Vietnamese restaurant and, rather than refereeing, enjoys watching the barbs and insults fly.

Their new building is ripe for rubbing elbows as starlets, rock stars and beautiful wannabes can be glimpsed on every elevator ride.

Supermodel Vee is the stuff dreams are made of...until she opens her mouth. Famous rap star Status Quo (Jason George) is at the peak of his career, but his pampered lifestyle and mannerisms of an urbane prep school boy threaten the very street cred that made him a hit.

The Weitzes serve as executive producers with Danny Zuker (Just Shoot Me, Roseanne) for Warner Bros. Television and DreamWorks SKG Television.
