Julie and Brandy Play A Pretend Couple… in Their New Sitcom “Roomies”

If you frequent this website, you’re no stranger to the work of Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard. Goldman, network sitcom’s go-to lesbian dayplayer and Howard, the hottest person to ever be in hundreds of commercials, star in Tello’s new webseries, Roomies. The project is written by Julie Keck & Jessica King (I Hate Tommy Finch) and directed by Christin Mell. The series also features Caitlin Bergh, Abby Mcenany, Kelly Beeman, and Jim Bennet.

Best friends Sam and Alex, both recently single, have found the perfect apartment. But there’s a catch: they have to convince their neighbors that they’re a couple to keep it.

The premise is enough to hook you but Julie and Brandy’s chemistry will keep you watching. Their real life camaraderie shines through in every scene they have together and makes you go along with the tenuous premise because you just don’t want to get off the ride. There’s a lot of backstory we have yet to discover but what’s been revealed is rich enough to keep you entertained. Watching Julie and Brandy together in a scripted series is something we haven’t been treated to until now and it was well worth the wait. Roomies is a premium show on Tello so you need a subscription to see all the episodes. With the subscription you’ll also be treated to The Neighbors (and many other shows), an accompanying series meant to give you a deeper look into the frustrations of Sam and Alex.

      • What the actual fuck? For serious? Boo-urns. I mean, obviously yay for her awesome lovely happiness and all but ……… this basically means I’ve been shipping real people!! Awkward.

  1. This has a delightful 80s sitcom premise with a modern twist and I love the idea. Adding it to my must watch.

  2. This has literally got to be the second best thing in life ever – the first best thing being, of course, a magical parallel universe where I actually get to have Julie and Brandy as roomies (finger-banging in every room of the house notwithstanding)

  3. This was sheer brilliance! I’ll basically take these two anyway I can get them. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that their characters eventually hook-up. They really do have oodles of fabulous chemistry.
