"Stained" is a spinoff of Pete Bakely's comedy "Drunks." Two years after the event of Drunks have occurred, Kenzie relocates to New York to work with another established screen and script writer by the name of Tamera. The story goes into the head of Tamera as she works on a brand new Broadway show that's already generating Tony buzz. Too busy to have a social life, and too scared to have her heart broken again, rather than date around, she has a casual FWB relationship with a down and out former child actor who is also working to reestablish not only his career, but his life. The creative process can be chaotic and dysfunctional, yet somehow healing, and it often takes a team effort - as Tamera is learning.
