Ages of the characters will be determined based on availability of actors

Show Synopsis: Emma, an incredibly determined realtor, decides that Joel is as much of a “fixer-upper” as the
house he lives in. With the addition of Joel’s soon-to-be-ex looking to get divorce papers signed and her “man purse”-toting beauty entrepreneur boyfriend in tow, Emma focuses all her considerable energy into developing the curb appeal of the house—as well as its inhabitant. The comedy is sure, the characters well drawn, and the
circumstances? Hilarious.
