What does a tortured artist, femme fatale, ego-maniac, gay dancer, wanna-be supermodel, and an impotent bus boy have in common? They all work together. This ensemble comedy love story chronicles the adventures and misadventures of a group of aspiring performers who wait tables at a New York City eatery called "Peter's Backyard." While the restaurant is a place of business, it's also a forum for everyone to work out the issues of life as they know it, or think they know it. Pitted against the New York culture jungle, Lenny, Andi, Joe, Derek, Shannon, and Dan serve up a prie fixe of artistic trauma, comedic insanity and thespian lust. We follow these characters as they struggle to keep their delicately balanced lives from coming unglued, in the urban warfare of the survival of the artist.
