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

This was an odd sitcom
6 May 2005 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I've never seen a sitcom that did what this show did. It was based around a set of lead characters then introduced a set of supporting characters. The supporting characters got more and more screen time, then by the end of the show the supporting characters became the leads and the leads became the supporting characters.

But the insanity doesn't end there! Most of the cast continued their roles on an entirely new series. Laura, the original lead female who became the supporting lead character, loved professional cooking and was becoming more and more successful in that field. Then suddenly she abandoned her career and made a logical jump into a similar field by becoming a real estate agent! Fortunately this was just in time for the sequel that was based in. ta-dah, a real estate office!

Sorry, but this show was good but it had strange direction.
