Call Me Fitz, Season 4

Secrets. We all have them.

Especially the Fitzpatricks.

With a new baby in the house – Elaine’s swinging party pad, no less – it’s the perfect time for Larry to dig out the family photo album, empty those boxes in the basement and discover what made the Fitzpatricks the class-A derelicts they are today. As family skeletons bust out of their closets to tap dance center stage, a toxic, familial game of “Survivor” begins, bringing new meaning to the phrase “Keep your enemies close … and hide the coke.” Every new piece of the Fitzpatrick past Larry uncovers sheds more light on the family’s twisted history, fuels the dysfunctional fire between them and, in the end, unearths a nemesis hell-bent on eradicating the Fitzpatricks and their way of life…

Call Me Fitz, Season 3

Politics. Power. Really pervy porn… This year our cocksure anti-hero is back on top. Sure, a career selling pre-owned is pretty sweet, but why stop there when real power’s within reach? Question is, how does a guy like Fitz get what he wants, when what he wants is always above the law? After losing the Summerwind Lounge to a Chester Vince-led re-zoning ordinance to protect the endangered speckled titmouse, Fitz realizes the only way to get his dream back on track (and beat Chester) is to join the ranks of power and run for public office, baby.

Call Me Fitz, Season 2

Season 2 finds Fitz incapacitated by a series of recurring nightmares. Larry believes Fitz is simply anxious about not being able to sell cars, a theory quickly discarded after a psychic tells Fitz to make amends to the “person he’s wronged,” or he’ll be dead by the next Beaver Moon… Is the shadowy assailant the hot new office manager/Ken’s protégé Dot Foxley, who has a penchant for witchcraft, and a miniature model of Fitzpatrick Motors (complete with Fitz and Larry voodoo dolls)? Only one thing is clear: 73 days to live and Fitz’s bad luck has only just begun…

Call Me Fitz, Season 1

Set in a used car dealership, Call Me Fitz is a show about a handsome, substance abusing scoundrel, Fitz, who torments his naive co-workers, sleeps with any woman with a pulse and — thinks his life is perfect. That is, until he takes a customer for a test drive and she ends up in a coma. The accident unleashes Larry, Fitz’s ‘conscience,’ intent on rehabilitating Fitz’s battered psyche and the Fitz family’s sleazy way of life. Bleak, black, twisted, it’s an existential buddy comedy that asks the eternal question: can a man change? More importantly, when he’s having this much fun, do we really want him to?
