Roger and Gene are living the dream. The media ecosystem is crumbling around them, the arts are being destroyed by A.I., but they’re still holding onto their jobs as America’s most beloved film critics. There’s only one problem: they absolutely hate each other. Also, their producers keep giving them bizarre and increasingly hostile notes. Oh, and they’re starting to get a little worried about all the inexplicable aches & pains on their bodies and the frequent episodes of memory loss. And their biggest rival knows a devastating secret about them that she won’t share. Will Fate give these bickering boys two thumbs up or has their mixed review of Barbie sealed their doom?

Roger and Gene is an absurdist & timely comedy about two very familiar film critics navigating a strange new world of on-demand content, artificial intelligence run amuck, and their own disintegrating relationship.
