The RoomMate Origin Story 


Born from Druid hill...

Many years ago I co-created a television series called Druid Hill about an African American elderly woman who rented out rooms in her house. This dramatic show would have highlighted positive stories from within the community. It never got off the ground, but one of its' conceits stuck in my mind. One of the rooms was cursed and the roommates never lasted more than one or two shows. This would allow guest stars to cycle through and help drive the stories. From that seed I developed the RoomMate. You're welcome.
