About Ex Pat
Ex Pat is a scripted comedy podcast about Patsy Santos and Eoin McClellan, two people from different cultures and countries who fall in love and have to figure it out despite - or maybe because of - their differences.
It's a romantic comedy that celebrates the craziness and quirkiness of Filipino American and Irish cultures, but it doesn't follow a traditional rom-com format. Instead of asking "Will they get together?" it focuses on "How do they make it work?"
It's a show for anyone who's in love, been in love, wants to be in love, or loves being different.
Set in present day Los Angeles, it also brings some Midwestern charm and Irish humor as we follow the misadventures of Patsy and Eoin, their friends, coworkers and families.
Ex Pat (Season 1) debuted March 17, 2020. An additional run of five minisodes (Season 1.5) was released June 2020.

Ex Pat was created by, written by and co-produced by Rachanee Lumayno, who also voices the Filipino-American character Patsy Santos.
An actress, writer, VO artist and producer, Rachanee was inspired to write Ex Pat when she got engaged to her own real-life Irishman. Their cultural differences created an ongoing source of comedy during their engagement and subsequent marriage. But in spite of those differences, love transcends any culture, language, or worldview, and that is the central theme of Ex Pat.
