Centered on the life of Tina, a server at Pepper’s Fine Dining Restaurant, TINA’S GROOVE chronicles the daily challenges of a waitress trained in the art of maintaining composure in the midst of madness.

About the Characters

TinaTina is the Everywoman of our time: smart, funny and real. She’s not waiting for her life to begin – she’s living it. Wherever her groove takes her, Tina is happy being Tina.





Always looking for a wild time,
Tina’s best friend and fellow
waitress knows where to find it. As she puts it, waiting tables is the blight on her career of living
vicariously through her own self. We all have a friend like Suzanne – she’s the girl next door … that is, if you live next door to a frat house.





One wonders if Monica is having deep thoughts or if she’s counting the tiles on the ceiling. Never “the hostess with the mostest,” Monica only wishes she were somewhere else. Others say she’s already on another planet.






With the ego of six men, Carlos is a man’s man. Whether he’s having a beer with the boys or spicing up the rigatoni in the kitchen at Pepper’s Restaurant, you’ll find he’s big on talk …
especially when he is the topic of conversation.






If you happen to catch him without his clipboard, you won’t recognize him. Being the general manager of Pepper’s Restaurant is serious business for Rob, even though it’s not what he went to college for. A control freak at heart, Rob is a shy bachelor whose idea of having a good time is loosening his tie while attacking the inventory sheets.






Sometimes, her wisdom is from another generation. But, most times, it’s from another wave-length … She’s proof that mothers and daughters don’t have to be on the same page to love each other.
