The very bizarre happenings in the lives of the residents of the seedy Hotel Baltimore. Despite their disparate backgrounds and ethnicities, these neighbors became one anothers' families. George and Gordon were middle-aged gay lovers, Suzy and April were prostitutes, Mr. Morse was a grouchy old man, Jackie was a young tomboy, Mrs. Bellotti was an eccentric woman with a never-seen psychotic son Moose who once glued himself to the ceiling, and Charles was a wise black man. Bill was the hotel's desk clerk, and Clifford its young manager. Written by

In 1975, this show was highly touted as being the next big TV hit. It was marketed along with another new show to the network, "Barney Miller," but Hot L got more buzz. The action transpired like a play, which is probably why it wasn't successful. The writing was good and the cast was notable and did very well with the material. Unfortunately, it never cut it with audiences.
