TV show description:      
This comedy revolves around a pair of best friends in their twenties who’ve moved from Indiana to Los Angeles to start cool new jobs at Groupon. While they have some things in common, the buddies can’t agree on how to socially engage in their new city.

Evan (Christopher Mintz-Plasse) prefers to socialize online at home in his underwear — web-chatting and playing poker with his Hoosier buddies like Mike (Parveesh Cheena), Sully (Tim Robinson) and Farhad (Dan Ahdoot).

Meanwhile, Rob (Nicholas Braun) is eager to embrace the big city scene and meet new people who aren’t looking down at their smart phones or laptops. He naively posts a flyer seeking new friends on a local coffee house bulletin board (despite Evan’s warning that no good can come from meeting strangers in person).

Soon, the calls start rolling in. Some have potential while others are just disturbing. Rob and a reluctant Evan embark on a series of epic adventures and disasters.

Series Finale:     
Episode eight
Not available.
First aired: N/A
Note: Following the death of co-creator Alan Kirschenbaum, the network decided to shelve the series and the produced episodes. It’s believed that eight were produced.

      Watched the pilot in Las Vegas. Was thoroughly entertained… I hope CBS will at least release the episodes so fans may watch it.
