MY PAL, SATAN takes odd-couple comedy to the nth degree when Donna (Rachel Wilson) finds herself stuck with the "Roommate From Hell" in the form of Satan (Jefferson Brown). Their conflicts as roommates and their unlikely affection for each other are a reminder that not only do opposites attract, but good and evil actually need each other in order to exist.

Created and written by CFC alumnus Dennis Heaton (The Listener, Fido ) who also serves as showrunner, MY PAL, SATAN is produced by Bryce Mitchell (CFC Producer's Lab '07), directed byVivieno Caldinelli (CFC Director's Lab '05), and edited by Aren Hansen (CFC Editor's Lab ‘06) and Matthew Hannam (CFC Editor's Lab ‘05). Music score by Paul Aucoin, lyrics by Dennis Heaton.
