"Weird Loners" (TV show) is a single-camera comedy series on FOX that is about four relationship-phobic, quasi-underdog 30-somethings who are unexpectedly thrust into one another's lives, forming unlikely bonds in a Queens, New York, townhouse.

Caryn Goldfarb (Becki Newton, "Ugly Betty") is a cute, but high-strung dental hygienist whose romantic life, unfortunately, is dictated by the love-crazed, ultra-romantic 13-year-old barricaded inside the control room of her brain. Each time a handsome new man crosses her field of vision, infatuation and extreme over-eagerness take over, and she inevitably winds up back at square one — single and not getting any younger.

Wall Street player — that is, until he romances his boss' fiancée and gets unceremoniously canned — Stosh Lewandoski (Zachary Knighton, "Happy Endings") is handsome, charming and whip-smart. He's a serial seducer who has never been able to maintain an intimate relationship with a woman for very long — a couple of hours, usually. When Stosh's shenanigans result in him losing his corporate condo, he winds up moving in with his cousin, Eric Lewandoski (Nate Torrence, "Hello, Ladies"), a sweet, odd man-child. Thus far, Eric's adult life has consisted of living at home with elderly parents and working as a toll collector on the Queensboro Bridge. After both of his parents pass away, he finds himself cast adrift in the world for the first time. On a Stosh-mandated mission to redecorate their dated apartment, Eric strikes up a friendship with Zara Sandhu (newcomer Meera Khumbhani), while buying one of her paintings on the street. Drop-dead gorgeous, mysterious and ethereal, Zara is a lifelong heartbreaker who's only capable of living one way — "in the moment." Men and women fall in love with her on a regular basis, and she often reciprocates their feelings with great passion, until ... she doesn't.

As fate would have it, Eric lives next door to Caryn, who finds herself unable to resist one of Stosh's particularly ill-timed advances, putting the kibosh on her pending engagement to a kind, but boring, father of two. The split leaves her single, again, and in need of a roommate, prompting Zara to move in, and bringing together these four people who, each for their own distinct reasons, are solo singles when most of their peers are well along the path of marriage and family. Perhaps they are "weird loners," as Stosh points out, or maybe they are just real people with messy, imperfect lives whose new friendships with each other already are changing their individual trajectories for the better.

The cast includes Becki Newton as Caryn, Zachary Knighton as Stosh, Nate Torrence as Eric, and Meera Kumbhani as Zara.

"Weird Loners" is produced by 20th Century Fox Television. The series is created and written by Michael J. Weithorn ("The King of Queens"). Weithorn, Jake Kasdan ("New Girl," "Bad Teacher") and Melvin Mar ("New Girl") serve as executive producers. Kasdan directed the pilot.
