The executive office door swings open…and veteran UBS TV executive MORTY is confronted by his new boss, who tells him the network is looking to nurture diverse viewpoints and has tasked him to mentor the diversity writers fellowship.
This demotion leaves Morty angry, so he knocks back a few drinks and vows to use these diverse kids to help him get a new hit TV show, and get back on top.
Meanwhile, the multicultural writers Morty will soon be ushering into the Hollywood fold have just viewed an orientation video narrated by a woman who claims to be the network’s first black employee and whose message sounds like a veiled plea for them to run far, far away.
But the new Mentees stay put and begin to speculate on who their new Mentor could be. Self-righteous LANGSTON believes it will be Spike Lee, and a desperate JESSICA hopes for Lena Dunham!
When a very late CHAD, who is seemingly white, straight and male, enters, the disappointed Mentees assume he’s their instructor. However, Chad introduces himself as the final mentee, and everyone’s confused as to why he’s in the program at all.
Back in the executive suite, Morty, perhaps for old time’s sake, or maybe even for good luck, gropes his secretary, then heads off to mold young minds.
Morty starts off on the wrong foot when he compares the Mentees to an ad for UNICEF, and manages to racially slander everyone, even when he’s trying to be complimentary! (In one instance, he compares Jessica, who’s Jewish, to Dr. Ruth, clarifying that it’s a compliment, because he schtupped her!)
Then Morty begins educating the dumbfounded Mentees on his four-step formula for writing a hit TV show. But all he does is end up championing actor Kirk Cameron, encouraging seeking funding from the Westboro Baptist Church, and classifying Donna Reed as a “hot piece of ass”.
Chad excuses himself, only to run into Jessica and MELANIE in the unisex bathroom, where they once again try (and fail) to get to the bottom of how Chad got accepted.
They return as Morty’s finishing his first day’s lesson with an inspirational speech on how he slept with Jeannie Shrimpton. Once Morty and Chad leave, the remaining Mentees bond as they hypothesize further on why Chad’s there and what his relationship with Morty is.
DWIGHT posits that maybe Chad’s there because he’s colorblind, which leads the Mentees to double-check the Diversity Program rules, where they’re bewildered to find that even a handicapped gay white male would be ineligible. This leaves militant Langston both angry and conflicted, as he always gets whenever he feels sympathy for white people, no matter how otherwise disadvantaged they may be.
And that’s just Day One of the UBS Diversity Writers Program. With no-holds-barred racist and sexist Morty at the helm, and having nothing to lose, it really may be the worst run diversity program ever!

Passionate is an understatement; When Larry commits to someone or something he dives in headfirst. Sure, he’d be lying if he didn’t admit to having his eye on that lucrative beach lifeguard gig, but secretly he knows he could never leave his best friends behind at the pool. A ‘straightforward’ thinking kind of guy, Larry loves his country, his whistle and watching a Notebook marathon on the Oxygen channel. How else would he know what love really is, considering his longest relationship has been with his best friend, Noah, aka the entrepreneur. Best friends with Larry. Slicker than sunblock on a changing room floor, some wonder how Noah can be so self-assured when he is a 30 year old assistant manager at the pool. He has thought about embarking on a string of business ideas, but then again that would be too much work. For Noah why work when you can sit poolside sipping on snowconearitas and playing go fish all day. He is his own man, living his own dream, living off his parents. Next up is the youngest of the group, Mel aka the lost one. Beneath Mel’s naive, innocent exterior is a naive innocent interior. But don’t be fooled, she can curse like a sailor - and drink like one too. Endowed with an overabundance of enthusiasm, she looks up to Larry.. and Noah.. and Karen.. and Chlorine Jan, and, well, pretty much anyone that can tie their own shoelaces. She dropped out of college to focus on being a life guard, in the summer. With grand dreams of being a WNBA star, she will only go as far as other people take her. The team is rounded out by Karen aka the mature one. The only one on the team who has a real job, and no we are not talking about lifeguarding. For nine months out of the year she teaches kindergarten. The other three months she babysits…Noah… and Mel…and Larry. Trying to keep these three in line is a full time job, especially when two out of the three people are her bosses. If she could teach year round, lord knows she would. Despite herself, she has a soft spot for the passionate who are determined. Hard working and by the book, she constantly finds herself at odds with the team. After coming off another failed attempt at running a community pool, the gang was fired. To everyone’s surprise, except for Larry, they have been given another opportunity at redemption with a new a pool. Things quickly go array when Larry shows up to work and finds that someone has shit in the pool. Things go from bad to worse, when local news anchor, Terrance Schander, decides to cover this story. Not only does Larry and the gang have the local spot light on them but they receive a surprise visit from a county inspector, who could shut them down before the evening even gets started. To ensure they don’t get fired again , Larry insists the team goes through lifeguard recertifications even though they have two years left on their certs. However, being prepared is not enough, why would it be, especially when the vandalization has escalated. In a last ditch attempt to catch vandal and with his back against the ropes, Larry organizes a stakeout at the pool. Will they catch the vandal….probably not but, one thing is for sure, they have a date with destiny. Unfortunately that date is with the “Monstars” of beach lifeguards. Larry and the gang must go head to head in a grueling competition of strength, athleticism, and of course a game of PIG. With bragging rights and relationships on the line, this is the most important day of teams’ summer.
