Pilot Synopsis

Half-Share? Quarter-Share? Men who impersonate Cher? The men on Fire Island speak a different lingo and for a newcomer like Mac, it’s way more than a mouthful! Practically hetero and fresh out of a 14-year relationship, Mac (Kyle Spidle) packs his Birkenstocks and emotional baggage for a summer share.

What Mac envisions as relaxing beach-time turns into high camp hysteria after his eccentric housemates take a fish out of water and fling him into the gay shark-pond!

Mac?s old friend Ito, the neurotic House Mother (Alec Mapa), collects ?antiques? while frantically trying to keep this unconventional family together. Ito?s efforts are thwarted by the antics of an aging chorus boy (Jesse Archer) on a personal quest to never grow up. The Michaels (Jack Plotnick & Sam Pancake), a couple who give new meaning to co-dependency, are celebrating their ten year anniversary by seeking a third. And Republican lawyer by week, drag diva by weekend, Harold (Kevyn Morrow) offers sage but insensitive advice that Mac struggles to accept.

After a downward spiral with high tea hijinx, a hot tub surprise and a tense showdown with his new housemates, Mac has to choose: Survive?or vote himself off the island?
