My 90-Year-Old Roommate

Joe (Paul Soles), a 90-year-old widower, is living alone when his misguided adult grandson moves in with nothing but a backpack, a box of condoms and a sense of entitlement.

My 90-Year-Old Roommate (MNYOR) is a scripted web series about Joe Cole, a widower living alone, until his misguided adult grandson, Ethan, moves in. The show bridges the generational gap as it follows Joe and Ethan as they learn to live with each other in a turbulent, technologically driven society. It’s an exploration of family, mortality, relationships, sex and other vices through the eyes of two generations, once removed. MNYOR is a reminder that we should never give up on our elders or our children, no matter how much patience they may require. The series challenges the one-dimensional treatment seniors are often given in the media. By emphasizing their vitality, wisdom and sense of humour, we show that the elderly are more complex than the senile, curmudgeons they’re often typecast as.
