Life with Roger

Show Summary

Welcome to the Life with Roger guide at

A wacky comedy about two men with nothing in common who become friends and roommates. It's Jason Fuller's wedding day, and he can't shake the feeling of impending doom. He's marrying his longtime girlfriend, Myra, a woman certain to make his life miserable.

"Fortunately, fate intervenes in the form of a quirky stranger named Roger, drastically changing the lives of both men. The mismatched pair meet when Jason convinces Roger not to jump off the ledge of a bridge. Their chance encounter snowballs into a day of wild adventure: Jason's car is towed, he's robbed at gunpoint at the ATM and then has to rush Roger to the hospital for an injury he suffered trying to thwart the robbery attempt. And all this happens before the wedding. Despite knowing Jason for only a few hours, Roger is convinced his impending marriage is a big mistake. Seconding that opinion is Lanie, Jason's sister and across-the-hall neighbor, who is sure she knows what's best for her brother.

"The two men couldn't be more different. While Jason worries about every detail of his life, Roger is a free spirit who doesn't sweat the "little" things, like having no permanent home and no job. The day begins with Jason thinking he has saved Roger's life, but ends with Roger throwing out a different kind of lifeline to save Jason. When Jason invites his new friend to stay at his apartment until he finds his own place, it's certain that life with Roger will be anything but dull.
