This season will focus on traveling nurse Deja (Armond), the newest tenant at the troubled (fictional) Freeman Lake Apartments, who relocated to Atlanta from Austin, Texas for a job assignment. She will room with an awkwardly shy and eclectic Doula named Shana (Ross).
Armand’s Deja starts off the season announcing her new assignment at the recently constructed Atlanta University Hospital – much to the dismay of her friends and colleagues. Amid her housing quest, she meets an awkwardly shy and eclectic Doula named Shana (Ross), who happens to be a nursing student at the university and is seeking a roommate – single Black female preferred.
Oblivious to its checkered past, Deja makes herself at home with Shana at Freeman Lake…unknowingly becoming a target of the latest eerie coincidence to inhabit the troubled community.
