After a successful Indiegogo campaign, and the launch of a prequel episode that garnered significant attention, the anticipated comedy series entitled My Roommate’s an Escort is going to camera on November 5th in Toronto, Canada.
The show follows the lives of two roommates from polar opposite backgrounds, and the chaos that ensues.
The co-creators of the show Katie Uhlmann and Trish Rainone could not be more excited. Uhlmann is also directing the show, and both women will star as the lead characters. Rainone portrays small-town girl Heather who gets taken advantage of by big-city-possible-escort-girl Kesha.

David Curruthers from Workin’ Moms (CBC) is also an Executive Producer, Russell Goozee is the Director of Photography, and Stephanie Baird (IRL the Series) is the Production Manager.
