Storyline

In this short-lived sitcom, former studio executive Linda Phillips began bringing the same zeal pushing costly houses for Juan Verde Real Estate. Linda's husband Richard was a professional pianist at Jasper's, but left the hangout - and his wife - by mid-season. Laura Kelly, separated from mystery writer Ben Coleman, also quit catering and became an apprentice agent. Among Linda's eccentric co-workers were Ted Nichols, her main rival; Scott Babylon, a talented impressionist; Margo Van Meter, the sassy, man-hungry secretary; and Roger McSwain, the manager of Juan Verde Real Estate.

"Duet" Remix
9 July 2004 | by (Chicago, USA) – See all my reviews

This was a spin-off of "Duet", which was a much better show. The focus was on Linda, a former witchy Hollywood studio executive who lost her power job. She switched careers and went into real estate. Linda had a new foil in a male real estate agent; they traded insults and tried to undermine each other. Ellen DeGeneres had an early role as the receptionist in the office. Would have been a lot better if it had not been set up as a continuation of "Duet". Some characters from "Duet", like Linda's husband, Richard, and her friend, Laura, were carried over into the new show. Richard's character was gone after a few episodes, and Laura appeared sporadically. Not a very funny show.
