Storyline

In this sitcom, Ben Coleman was a mystery writer while his girlfriend Laura Kelly was a caterer with her younger sister Jane. Richard and Linda Phillips were a high-powered yuppie couple; he was in the family patio-furniture business and she was a studio executive. Linda's employer at World Wide Studios was Cooper Hayden, who eventually became infatuated with Jane. Geneva was the Phillips' wisecracking, sexy maid who sometimes fraternized with the sisters. Richard later quit his job to become a professional pianist, while Linda lost her job at World Wide Studios. Written by Anonymous

Bring it to DVD! It's a gem!
30 July 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I at least would love to see it on Nick at Night! I don't exactly know how to request it on the TV on DVD site, but if you've never seen it and it got added to the TV on DVD list, you'd be an instant fan also. It's a late 80's/early 90's gem lost in a sea of smut. Along came "married with children" and soon the quality of the programming went downhill, and the rest of the lineup followed suit. It was cool seeing Alison LaPlaca as Rachel's boss on Friends, and I was remembering first seeing her on "Duet" as Linda Phillips. I also remember one episode where Ben & Laura went to a motel and stayed in "room 214" when they got back together after a brief breakup to have a wildly romantic romp. I wish I could see this program again!!!
