Mission Hill 411

"Mission Hill" revolves around Andy French, a 24-year-old charmingly lazy guy, and his nerdy teenage brother Kevin who moves into Andy's big city loft. These two couldn't be more opposite: Andy can never seem to settle on a particular job or girlfriend, while straight-A Kevin never gets a B or a girlfriend. The show takes place in the fictional city of Cosmopolis's equally fictional neighborhood of Mission Hill. It's a hip place full of diverse, colorful characters -- think Silver Lake in Los Angeles, Wicker Park in Chicago or Williamsburg in Brooklyn. Regulars also include Posey Tyler, the whimsical roommate who hides a secret dark side, and Andy's mellow best friend Jim Kuback who's well-connected to the hip downtown scene. Across the hall are Natalie, Carlos and their baby, who are, respectively, a professor, a painter and an infant. Next door are Gus and Wally, a gay couple in their 60’s given to loud fights and loud making up.


Andy French
He's a wanna-be cartoonist living in a hip neighborhood called Mission Hill. Andy's all about cheap liquor, bad snacks and good parties.

Kevin French
A geeky high school student, Kevin's purpose in life is not to make Andy miserable. It just seems that way.

Jim Kuback
Andy's best friend. Jim is a laid-back guy who eats constantly, talks slow and drives a beat-up car called The Bilgemobile.

Posey Tyler
Posey's a modern flower child (and space case) who's into auras, chakras and growing organic vegetables on the loft roof. Beware of her evil side.

Andy's dog. He's a slobbery mutt who eats furniture and drinks malt liquor. Stogie's definitely not the world's smartest animal. He's not even the world's smartest mineral.

Neighbors and Friends

Late 60s. Gus lives across the hall with Wally, his lover of forty years. A relationship ruled by passion, Gus and Wally can often be heard bickering loudly, or making up loudly. Gus is similar to "The Thing" from the Fantastic Four, but instead of being made out of bricks he is flesh and blood, and instead of having superpowers he is a gay man who runs a diner.

Late 60s. Aside from being Gus' longtime live-in lover, Wally is a projectionist at the local art movie house. He enjoys "cinema", ragtime music, David Niven, honesty, neatness, kind people and, most of all, Gus. Although nervous, whiney, self-effacing and argumentative, Wally's very easy to get along with unless you've been living with him for forty years.

Natalie Leibowitz-Hernandez
Late 20s. Politically correct and intellectually well-endowed, Natalie is a professor of Women's Studies at the local college. Sensitive to biases in our culture, she refuses to name her newborn baby so as not to assign it a preconceived gender stereotype. She is a working mother who supports both "Baby Nameless" and her non-working "marital partner" Carlos.

Carlos Hernandez-Leibowitz
Late 20s. He is a struggling artist and stay-at-home dad for Baby Nameless. Unlike his wife Natalie, Carlos likes to get drunk, eat junk food and sleep late. Although his most recent painting was made from the cream filling of Twinkies, his work is, at times, reminiscent of Jackson Pollack, Diego Rivera and Bob Ross. He prides himself on having no discernable style.

Baby Nameless
9 months. Hyper-active and mischievous, Baby Nameless has inherited its father's love of a good sugar high. One thing is certain about Baby Nameless Leibowitz-Hernandez Hernandez-Leibowitz: for a kid with no name, the kid's got a helluva long name.

Early 20s. Andy's on-again, off-again girlfriend, Gwen completed two years of community college before settling in Mission Hill, which she describes as "bitchin'". She met Andy working at Ron's Waterbed World, and soon determined that he too was bitchin'. Someday she'd like to be an accomplished person who achieves her goals and makes a serious contribution to society but as what, she hasn't a clue. Until then, she's gonna have a bitchin' good time!

Toby Mundorf
17. One of Kevin's best friends in Mission Hill. Toby is extremely tall and fat for his age. His overprotective mother worries a great deal about him, as he frequently suffers from allergies, asthma, and hunger. A born pacifist, Toby responds to taunting from his peers by either running away or crying.

George Bang
17. Kevin's other best friend. George works long hours after school in his father's market. George is extremely competitive in everything from taking tests to playing video games, and will often burst into tears if he loses. He shares all the same interests as his best friends and is particularly proud of owning the complete Babylon 5 collectible card game.
