Complete series cast summary:
 Tracy Dillon (8 episodes, 1991)
 Melissa Kirshner (8 episodes, 1991)


Three young, single women became roommates in a most unusual way. Tracy was a shy, trusting English teacher who left her fiancé when she found out he had been married twice before and that one of his ex-wives was his sexy business partner. What she salvaged, however, was a fabulous Manhattan penthouse apartment overlooking Central Park. Tony, the owner of the apartment, a globetrotting friend of her almost husband, had given it to them for a year, rent free, as a wedding present. Apparently he was a little forgetful, having also loaned to the apartment to Georgy, a recently widowed English princess (and former showgirl) who had moved to the States while her late husband's children fought with her attorney over his will. Since Georgy had no friends in New York, she was more than happy to share the huge apartment with Tracy. The third 'princess' was Tracy's longtime roommate and best friend, Melissa, an outspoken, stereotypical Jewish American who sold cosmetics at a department store. Written by Anonymous

Did You Know?


Even in the face of bottom five Nielsen ratings, universally-scathing reviews, behind-the-scenes problems, affiliate defections, and the general apathy of Fran Drescher and CBS programming head Jeff Sagansky, the producers actually considered recasting Julie Hagerty's part (following her departure). Before they managed to get very far, CBS saved them the trouble by canceling the series. See more »
