A comedy series set around 4 Uni undergrads who respond to an ad too good to resist: “free rent and board in exchange for final year project work”. 2 girls, 2 boys. One brother, one sister, two best friends. one foreign student; One ambitious, one scatter-brained, one girl-crazy and one with OCD. Each one learns to negotiate life in the confines of an HDB flat for a deal too good to pass. Soon they find themselves thrown into a world of landlord, neighbours, and an all too suave Mr. Charming. This is further complicated by their needs and wants as young adults, against a set of rules that are so cryptic they lead to unnecessarily complex situations with comedic results. This is “Big Bang Theory” meets “Friends”. The series kicks off with the 4 undergraduates moving into an HDB flat where their daily activities are recorded on CCTV cameras placed all over. But the 4 participants are not aware that the real purpose of the experiment had materialized as a result of a wager between their landlord Professor Tham and her rival Professor Seow. The four of them eventually relish in this reality-show like existence, until they slowly discover clues (e.g. hidden cameras other than the main one they know about) as the show go on a-la the Truman Show. Their already busy academic and social lives are thrown more into a tizzy with Professor Tham’s unwavering set of rules that the four now call Tham mail.
