My 90-Year-Old Roommate

About the Show

​MY 90-YEAR-OLD ROOMMATE is a buddy comedy rooted in family and set in the madness of the modern world. It's an exploration of technology, mortality and relationships told through the eyes of two generations, once removed.

Joe (Paul Soles), a 90-year-old widower, is living alone when his misguided adult grandson moves in with nothing but a backpack, a box of condoms and a sense of entitlement. Ethan (Ethan Cole) is 31, single and jobless. Joe disapproves of his grandson's instability and seemingly singular ambition: getting laid. Ethan is concerned that his grandfather has become increasingly detached from the world since his wife passed away. They're both in ruts and a new living situation might just be what's needed to reverse their fortunes. From Tinder dates to early bird specials, this odd pair discovers they have a lot to learn from each other.
