Storyline

Frank Parish is a professor from Boston, who has not seen his father since he was two. 35 years later, he is told that his father died and that he owned a restaurant in New Orleans, which is now legally Frank's. Frank goes there and was going to go back and sell the restaurant to the employees, but Miss Marie feels that the restaurant is his legacy, so she has a curse placed on him that would take effect when he returns to Boston. And when he does all sorts things happen to him, so he returns to New Orleans. He tries to make a go of it but frankly, it's a different place for him. The one bright spot is Hannah Griffin, whom Frank has the hots for but unfortunately for him, she's enganged. But when Frank meets him, he thinks that he has a shot. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Hanna Griffin was based on a real-life mortician whom Reid and Wilson met in New Orleans. They were surprised to find that a young, beautiful woman worked in the funeral business. They both immediately thought of Daphne Reid to play the role. Mrs. Griffin-Lamour was based on the real-life owner of the funeral home who was in a wheelchair. See more »

Tremendous
17 September 2003 | by (Philadelphia, USA) – See all my reviews

Fantastic show. As everyone else seems to note, canceled way too soon. Puts shows like NYPD Blue, Six Feet Under, and other critical darlings to shame -- had more depth, cleverness, backwards humor and good, understated acting in a single show than a year's worth of Six Feet Under.

Definitely leads off the list of "why don't the networks spend the six hours it would take to hire some intern to transfer the tape to DVD and release this oblivion" shows.
