Roommates premiered in South Africa on M-Net on Wednesday 23 September 2009, at 19h30. New episodes aired weekly.
The bags are packed, the boxes are already moved in and five twenty-somethings are about to embark on the funny and unpredictable rollercoaster ride of living with Roommates.
Starring Tamera Mowry, Tyler Francavilla, Dorian Brown, Tommy Dewey and David Weidoff, Roommates follows a group of friends in New York City trying to figure out love and life in their post-collegiate years.
Loveable but awkward Mark (Francavilla) stumbles upon his dream come true when he runs into his old high-school crush, Katie (Brown), and becomes her new roommate in an attempt to finally win her heart.
Unfortunately for Mark, Katie is still in love with her on-again/off-again boyfriend.
Further complicating matters, Mark doesn't hit it off with Katie's best friend and roommate, Hope (Mowry), a strong willed executive who Mark learns, unbeknownst to her fellow roommates, has lost her job and now secretly works at a coffee shop.
The fourth and final apartment mate is James (Dewey), who works in the investment world and takes great pleasure in watching Mark's feeble attempts to win Katie's favor.
Rounding out the group is Mark's former roommate and best friend, Thom (Weidoff), a quirky guy who takes an instant liking to Hope.
As they look for love, inside the apartment and out, struggle with their current and future job options, and deal with overbearing parents who can't seem to let go, the roommates lean on each other to make it through this tough but exciting time of life.
Now, if they could just figure out a bathroom schedule that would work for everyone...
