Description

Malcolm & Eddie is an American television sitcom created by Joel Madison about two friends who come into a large sum of money and use it to buy the building they live in, which includes a pub in which they spend most of their time hanging with the locals and getting into various scrapes.

Malcolm McGee (Malcolm-Jamal Warner) is a responsible and sensible 20-something who ends up sharing a Kansas City apartment and a business venture with relentlessly enthusiastic tow truck owner Eddie Sherman (Eddie Griffin).

A fast talker with outlandish frenetic energy, Eddie's charming naiveté always seems to get the two into hot water. But no matter what the situation, these opposites always end up bailing each other out - even if they drive each other crazy.

When the guys unexpectedly became recipients of a considerable sum of money, Malcolm and Eddie decided to buy not only the old Irish pub below their apartment, but the entire building, including Eddie's garage, as an investment.

As new bar owners, the guys gave the place a facelift by turning it into a sports bar and renaming it McGee's.

There, they hang out with local regulars, including Tim (Jaime Cardriche), a gentle giant working as a male nurse, and Nicolette (Karen Malina White), the motor-mouth police academy cadet with a love-crazed obsession for Eddie.

As Malcolm manages McGee's and Eddie tries to bolster his fledging one-man/one-truck towing operation into a fleet, success for these two could be as simple as staying out of trouble.

Jeff Franklin serves as executive producer of Malcolm & Eddie for Jeff Franklin Productions in association with TriStar Television, Inc.
