Venice Beach inventor-surfer Edison and his roommates Ty  and Zak as they all near eviction.

For rent money, Edison tries, unsuccessfully, to sell his dopey devices, including his Glo Gunk and his bug-killer helmet.

Edison offers roadside assistance to wealthy tycoon Armand McMillan Jack Warden, who dies and wills controlling shares of his business to Edison.

This puts Edison at odds with McMillan's mean-spirited nephew and closest corporate competitor Grace Kosik.

Edison gets positive reactions to such inventions as TV dinners with real TVs and his Bull Shirt lie-detector -- while schemes and intrigue lurk around every corner of the corporate corridors.
