Roomies 2: Brandon v. The Tenants Association
From the writer and director of Low-Hanging Fruit (as seen on ABC News) and Roomies,
Brandon Miles returns to another world of chaos after allowing his pretentious friend and realtor, Norman, to pack his newly-bought building with Brandon’s long-time friends, cousin (Randy), and associates, all of whom prove to be, once again, a crippling headache. And now, instead of accepting their eviction notices and moving on, the tenants have banded together under the direction of Brandon’s nemesis, Claudette, and have filed a lofty lawsuit against him. Adding to Brandon’s grief is the fact that they are represented by none other than Brandon’s ex-fiance, Tamra—a new hot-shot attorney. As the outrageous legal proceedings ensue, Brandon must stop his mother from killing the judge, try to understand his lawyer’s incomprehensible dialect, and fight his lingering feelings for Tamra. But there’s more, his star witness, Randy, is being held hostage and thrown into a convoluted web of mystery and imminent danger, as he tries solidifying his imagined singing career and defend his down trodden cousin—the former is of way more importance, of course.

The sequel promises to push the envelope: go where Roomies, as outrageous as it was, wouldn't dare go. The comedy pokes fun at class, racial, sex, and gender issues, while making not-so-subtle commentary about the broken systems in urban America. Additionally, this second installment of the Roomies franchise, while for the most part is a romantic comedy of sorts, invites intrigue and suspense in the fold, allowing for a breathtaking cliffhanger--and the need for yet another chapter to this saga. Join us (again) as we continue on our mission to use diverse casts to tell culturally diverse stories to a diverse audience.
