Stuck at home and having to deal with family, roommates, and partners a little more than you prefer? If so, we have an escape for you! We’re paying 5 lucky candidates to have the ability to escape their current quarantined reality and immerse themselves in their favorite television show.  

All we want to know is which TV character you’d rather be quarantined with. Would you rather be stuck at home with Michael Scott or Dwight Schrute? George Costanza or Kramer? Homer Simpson or Bart? We’re trying to find the ultimate quarantine roommate from TV history...

Who can apply?

Anyone over the age of 18+ who is eligible to work in the U.S. can apply. Bonus points if you’re already active on social media. 

What can I watch?

You can choose any show of your choice. Keep in mind, you only have 14 days to watch an entire series, so if you choose the Simpsons, you’ll be watching a total of 684 episodes. But if that’s the show you want to watch, we won’t stop you! 

Here are a few of our favorites for inspiration: Friends, Breaking Bad, The Office, Parks and Recreation, How I Met Your Mother, Ozark, Prison Break, American Horror Story, etc.

What will you get if selected?

  • One-year subscription to the streaming platform of your choice (approx. $150-$200)
  • Postmates Gift Card ($250)
  • Snacks and Popcorn ($50)
