Trivia

NBC programming executive Brandon Tartikoff pitched the idea to Jay Tarses of doing a series about a single woman in her 30's living in a big city. Tarses immediately thought of his friend 'Blair Brown' for the lead. Tarses and Brown discussed how not to make the series into a formulaic sitcom. See more »

Deserved to be a Hit!
14 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember this show fondly because it was filmed in New York City on location without a laugh track or studio audience which was quite a departure for a sitcom about a single woman in the thirties played by the wonderful Blair Brown as Molly Dodd. She must deal with her mother played by the equally wonderful Allyn Ann McLerie. I don't remember ever seeing Molly's brother and sister twins, Mamie and Dwight Dodds who lived in the suburbs. Molly's single life is far from the Sex in the City girls. It was more realistic and believable about Molly trying to find the right man and job. I remember it first on network later on lifetime before it ceased completely from television. The cast and crew were first rate and the writing was simply wonderful just like Molly's life.
