As seen on HBO Canada, this timely series set in an unstable economy follows the winding karmic adventures of fallen corporate exec Steve Unger, who was caught cooking the books and now finds himself legally forbidden from working in any position that involves "other people's money". Clinging desperately to the last vestige of his former self -- his luxury sedan -- Steve hopes to start over. Shunned by family and friends, under court order to teach an ethics class to other "fallen angels", Steve now makes his home inside his luxury car. Propelled ahead by his needs and whims, trying to simultaneously help and exploit everyone he meets, Steve attempts to survive in the land of the have-nots and at the same time somehow resurrect the charmed life he once had.

He visits his friend and lawyer Neil to retrieve his precious luxury sedan (to protect the car from creditors Neil has put it in his name). With nowhere else to turn, Steve meets Carol, a unique woman who has chosen to live in her car and who convinces Steve that his best bet while trying to get his life together is to do the same.||28:34||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Despite being proud of his daughter’s “entrepreneurial spirit”, Steve convinces the school’s janitor (who longs to produce and direct the semi-autobiographical teen slasher script he’s written) to give him access to the school’s records so Steve can destroy any evidence of Kate’s wrongdoings. Kate is annoyed by her mother’s new-found obsession with on-line dating. Steve visits Lori’s father, a once-shady businessman who is responsible for teaching Kate how to run a sports-book.

Original and quite funny
This is actually surprisingly amusing. The premise to strong and contemporary. Unfortunately, some of the support acting is pretty uneven and the writing has to be careful not to get stupid. The audience for this kind if comedy us pretty bright. Keep it clever....Don't fall into stupid.
