“The crumple zone: a space designed to deform in a collision, preventing the impact from being transmitted to the occupants within that space”
Watch as close friends transform a New York apartment intoThe Crumple Zone! This hilarious comedy gives a fly-on-the-wall perspective when four friends and a mystery visitor find themselves in just one apartment in Staten Island over the Christmas holiday season.
There’s fighting, laughter, bad decisions, bickering, mistakes, ambition, Season’s Greetings, love triangles and plenty of honesty.
Lucas Livesey plays Terry, long-suffering and looking for love. Robbie Capaldi is Buck, handsome and adorable. Nick Brittain‘s Alex wants more from his life. Fanos Xenofos as Roger is a blue-collar man dangerously confident who completes this hot young cast. Natasha Edwards brings the female perspective as Sam.
This is how a sleepover should be. Makes Big Brother look like Enid Blyton!
