Storyline

Wanda Talbert is a New York con artist. After being caught by the NYPD, she agrees to help them nail a criminal. What they didn't tell her was that she would have to testify against him, and that will not take place for a few years, which means that she has to remain in custody till that day comes, which does make her happy, cause it means she would have to put her money making schemes or con games on hold. They then send her to Palm Springs where an ex federal marshall runs a security agency where she will work while hiding. Also accompanying her is Joey Paciorek, New York cop who has to protect her and make sure that she doesn't bolt. They pretend to be Cody and Dani Powell a couple, which is not going to be easy since both of them don't like each other. Written by <rcs0411@yahoo.com>

Cancellation info here
15 July 2009 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I was a big fan of this show as well. I lived in Palm Springs when this show was being filmed. somebody on here stated the cancellation was due to sets destroyed by an earthquake. There was no major earthquake that year. Besides, the series was filmed on location in Palm Springs and it's surrounding cities. I watched them film many times, as they used the hotel(Hyatt Grand Champions Resort) that I worked for, in many scenes, inside and outside. The office where their boss works was filmed at Marriott Desert Springs resort. The house that the main characters shared in the show is an actual house in Palm Springs. So what was the reason for it's cancellation, then? Well, the show debuted as a two hour premier on a Sunday evening and made the top ten. However, when the show started airing in it;s own Saturday 10pm time slot, the ratings declined very fast. But a couple months later, CBS aired the show one time on a thursday 9pm time slot as a test. The show ranked in the top 30 shows for the week. And two nights later for it's normal time slot, the ratings drastically improved. During the December hiatus, Connie told CBS and the production company that if the series was picked up for the full season after hiatus, she wanted to film in Los Angeles on a sound stage, closer to her home. She made a few remarks about this in a few interviews, at that time as well. Going as far as saying since the ratings went back up, CBS would fulfill her requests in order to keep the show on the air. She stated if the show was picked up for the remainder of the season, she'd only return if CBS did this for her. CBS didn't want to film the series in a studio. They had a great deal with the city of Palm Springs and the surrounding areas. And with Connie hinting she might not honor her contract, CBS decided to cancel the show. It wasn't a long running show yet, it was expensive to shoot, and here is the co-star trying to make demands. I noticed Connie hasn't had a starring role in any television series since.
