CLOSING ESCROW is the story of three unusual families seeking to buy their next home. They're all moving for different reasons—and none of them are getting along with their real estate agents.
African American attorneys Bobby (Cedric Yarbrough) and Tamika (April Barnett) have hired Hillary Macella (Wendi McLendon-Covey) as their real estate agent. Hillary is a racially hype sensitive white woman dealing with more than her share of white guilt. That is until she gets mugged, and starts seeing the world quite a bit differently.
Tom (Andrew Friedman) and Dawn (Patty Wortham) are an unconventional couple. When they met, Tom was happily married to another woman. But thanks to Dawn's unstoppable persistence, bordering on stalking, convinced Tom to leave his wife and start his life over again in a new home with Dawn. They've lumped themselves with a shady real estate agent who has a knack for damaging homes to make them more affordable for his clients. This makes house hunting somewhat awkward for Tom and Dawn, not to mention a little dangerous.
Mary (Colleen Crabtree) and Allen (Rob Brownstein) feel like they've lucked out with their real estate agent. Not only is Peter Jacobsen (Bruce Thomas) a great guy and a talented agent, he's also their friend. But as it happens, Peter is living in a much nicer house than Mary and Allen can afford, sparking a one sided competition with jealous Allen as he connives to try and get one-up his agent in the middle of their house hunt.
As all three families converge on the same property with different offers, who gets the house?
