synopsis
When life gives you roommates, make friends. From the creators of critically acclaimed 'Kelsey,' the webseries, comes a comedy pilot about Timothy, Amy & Denise.

director
Christina Raia is a New York City based Writer/Director, the Founder of CongestedCat Productions LLC & a Crowdfunding Specialist at Seed&Spark. She won Best Director for her feature film, SUMMIT, at the Rhode Island International Film Festival's Vortex Fest, and the film won Best Horror Film at the Manhattan Film Festival. It was released on VOD in 2016. She co-created, directed and produced the comedic web series Kelsey, which premiered on blip.tv in September 2013 to rave reviews and consistent press coverage, including as a Critic’s Pick and named one of the 19 Best Comedy Web Series of 2013 by Indiewire.com. It has over a quarter million hits online. Her other credits as Director, Producer and Writer include multiple narrative short films that have made official selection at film festivals across the country. In addition to Indiewire, her work and approach as a filmmaker have been covered by the Examiner, AfterEllen and BuzzFeed. She also turned her desire to foster collaboration and engagement in the local film community into IndieWorks, a monthly film screening series showcasing and supporting the work of other independent filmmakers in New York.

filmmaker's note
The idea for this pilot came about one day when I was hanging with my two best friends, one of whom is a lesbian and the other a gay man. We always have such a shenanigan-filled time together and we play off each other in fun & unique ways. At the time, Kelsey Rauber, one of said best friends, the writer of this pilot and my work-wife/main collaborator, and I were coming off the heels of a very successful LGBTQ comedy web series titled "Kelsey," and one of us made a joke that our next series should be about our friendship. Who actually said the title first is debatable, but "Two Gays & a Girl" came out of someone's mouth and we immediately fell in love with it and the idea of a series about a lesbian, a gay guy, and a straight girl as best friends and roommates. Soon enough Kelsey and I were mapping out the characters, the pilot and where the series could potentially go. We feel it's a fun spin on the typical roommates/friends sitcom subgenre while being more true to life and representative of real contemporary groups of friends, especially living in New York (countering the heteronormative, whitewashed version mainstream media continues to perpetuate). We hope this pilot will garner enough interest to allow us to reboot it as a web series with a real budget and audience-driven momentum.
