In senior year, Mitch Baldwin (Mark Little) won the lottery. Three years later, he was flat broke and a laughing stock with a litany of failed schemes and lavish spending marking his path to the bottom. He's been holed-up in his family home ever since. With his father, Warren (Mark McKinney), retiring, talk of downsizing pushes Mitch to suggest renting a room to a mysterious stranger named Carl (Brett Gelman). When Carl upsets Mitch's routine way of life, a battle of wits turns into all-out war involving deception, humiliation, spying and revenge. The question is: how far are these guys prepared to go? The answer: too far. Featuring hilarious performances from a notable cast including Mark Little (Mr. D., Rollertown), Brett Gelman (Love, Lemon, Married), Mark McKinney (Superstore, The Kids In The Hall), and Stephnie Weir (MADtv) - Matthew Atkinson's Room For Rent is an inventively memorable comedy.
