Mayo Davis (Elliott Smith, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping) is an introspective 11 year old who lives with his mom Muriel (Beth Lacke, Frequency) at the Alamo motel, a charming but slightly rundown property in L.A.

Together with his neighbor Candy (Brooke Markham, Cassandra French's Finishing School), Mayo sets off on an adventurous chase through his new neighborhood in search of a like-minded friend. A Kid Called Mayonnaise is written and executive produced by Will McRobb (The Adventures of Pete and Pete) and directed by Luke Matheny (Gortimer Gibbon's Life on Normal Street) and features an original song by Diet Cig.

Rounding out their trio is Ira (Griffin Kunitz, Days of our Lives), who has a garage full of inventions and gadgets they can use on their adventures.
