USR Content and Madatoms.com present RENT CONTROL, a web-based comedy series about a hopeless college graduate who finds himself managing a decrepit apartment complex and dealing with a hellish group of eccentric and difficult tenants.

USR Content and Madatoms.com are proud to announce filming for RENT CONTROL, a hilarious new online comedy series written by and featuring The Daily Show's Josh Gad that is set to begin filming July 10th, 2009. Other writing credits go to fellow Lost Nomads comedy troupe members Tyler Moore, Ida Darvish and Tyler Clancey, who will also direct and co-star.

In this web series, Brett Swanson is a community college graduate who has drifted through life avoiding work, conflict and any goal whatsoever. His uncle is the owner of a large and successful property management company who hires Brett as a favor to his sister, placing Brett in the position of building manager at a decrepit apartment building.

Without any real description of what his job entails, Brett soon finds himself surrounded by a nightmarish group of tenants including a lecherous gay porn star who uses his apartment as an adult film set, a scheming con man, a taser-happy police officer, and a married couple on the verge of a murder-suicide. In the process of dealing with this group, Brett will learn what he's truly made of.

Josh Gad, star of The Rocker and a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart has a steadily rising notoriety that will help contribute a built-in base of viewers. In addition to this, Josh's celebrity friends such as Fred Willard and others are set to make cameos on the show.

Rent Control is an independent production being produced by USR Content. Fox Digital Studio is tracking the production for a possible negative pickup.
