Weird Loners is a new single-camera comedy about four relationship-challenged mid-30-somethings who are unexpectedly thrust into one another’s lives, forming unlikely bonds in a Queens, NY, townhouse. Along with Knighton and Newton the cast includes newcomer Meera Rohit Kumbhani.
The series explores the lives of these underdogs who, each for his/her own distinct reasons, are solo singles when most of their peers are well along the path of marriage and family. As the members of this off-kilter quartet get to know each other, they’ll face an endless array of riotous–and likely uncomfortable–circumstances, ranging from a reunion with an estranged pre-teen son, to confusion about same-sex dating, to scheming the art world to make a quick buck.
Weird Loners is a show for all those who have at some point felt scared, lost, lonely and overwhelmed in the world of love and relationships. Namely, everyone.
