In 2007, the decades-old and decaying Studio Downstairs was sold to condo developers with plans to build a 33-storey tower. Seven years ago, the once happily married owners of Studio Downstairs planned to cash their cheque and lock the studios doors. Then the market cooled. Legal issues left a half-dug hole next to the studio. Divorce left a trail of broken hearts and broken dreams. All plans switched to standby. But condo construction is now slated for 2015! With business picking up and eccentric clients booking every week, is there enough time to save the studio that once recorded a demo to "Hallelujah" (A demo not THE demo)? Crank the Divorce Dial to 11 and you have Studio Downstairs.

Writing comedy seemed like a natural fit for Chris Graham especially after Seminary and Social Work. So, after completing The Second City's writing program Chris joined the Hollow Book Productions team and has only regretted it after Secret Santa at their last office Holiday Party.

James graduated from the University of Toronto where he majored in Cinema Studies. He learned to edit films as an unpaid intern so you could say he went method for his role as 'The Intern' (but he wouldn't). James met TJ and Chris in the Second City's Comedy Writing Program.
