Life is messy and mettlesome for two muddle-headed best friends who are trying to make a go of love in L.A.

Stella, a bisexual plumber who moonlights as a go-go dancer,is perpetually anxious and commitment-phobic. Max, an aspiring actor whose career has stalled, needs constant affirmation and is crazy in love with his allegedly straight roommate, Danny. Stella and Max bond when they realize how much of their lives seem to be mired in filth. But things begin to look up whenStella meets super cute fellow go-go dancer, Jocelyn. And Danny seems to be getting ready to finally leave the closet behind. Are things about to change for Max and Stella, or will they both find ways to sabotage their own happiness?

Recalling tragicomic series such as Please Like Me, The Filth is a wickedly funny tribute to the chaos of modern life.
