Beverly Hotel

Nobody said running a model hotel was easy, but two brothers living Beverly Hills are doing everything they can to keep the tenants happy and the lights on.

Synopsis
Beverly Hotel is a half hour, character-driven drama about two brothers who inherited their grandfather’s construction business and, with the help of their no-longer absentee father, learn that inheriting money is easier than keeping it.

The brothers decide to move out of their home in San Fernando home and into more spacious digs in Beverly Hills. They meet Scott Whitfield, who runs a successful modeling agency. Scott needs somewhere to house models in town for shoots and the brothers are looking for a way to subsidize their lease. Woman come and go but despite living in a house brimming with tens and money in the bank, the Bohannan brother’s problems are only getting started. From weeklong benders to squandering money when your business is consumed by lawsuits and sibling rivalry; what ensue are the struggles of people trying to live the life of luxury on checks that are feast or famine.

From the affable, small town girl from Houston, Delaware who comes to Los Angeles carrying her childhood dreams in two pieces of luggage, to the Central American model willing to do whatever and whoever it takes to achieve success, to the southern bell whose home was destroyed in Hurricane Katrina; Beverly Hotel is a story about people dreaming for the impossible and finding success and failure in the unlikeliest of places.

Beauty is only skin deep, but sometimes it’s not even that thick. The brothers are riding a wave of the good life and whether they are just getting started or have already crested, they are learning that getting to Beverly Hills was easy, it’s staying that is going to be tough.

Characters

Adam can be found buying a bottle at a club or borrowing your cell phone because of a past due account. He is equal parts honest and misogynist, often too much of both.

Ben Bohannan: 23 years old, slender, aloof younger brother. Ben uses charm to finesse his way through life. Ben gets whatever he wants by knowing how to ask and prefers taking his newest roommate out to the Getty Museum for lunch than visiting jobsites. Ben is savvy but often chooses immediate gratification over longer-term goals. Ben earned the nickname Spring Break Todd for a beer in one hand, a smoke in the other and thousand of dollars burning a hole in the front of his Armani jean pocket-sort of lifestyle.
