Romantic and family serio-comic drama series about two American strangers in their twenties who meet and fall in love in Italy, and return home, get to know each other's families and take on new challenges in their lives...as do their friends and families. Of all the other Herskowitz and Zwick television series, this is the one closest in spirit and appeal to Once and Again, their next major television project. Written by
Emotionally distressed Isabel Lukens (Kimberly Williams-Paisley) is alone in Rome. Fellow American Leo Roth (David Conrad) sees her LA Clippers cap and they strike up a Roman holidays fling. Back in the States, Isabel has to deal with boyfriend Everett who is beloved by her parents and looking to propose. She has two sisters; Jennifer with volatile poet boyfriend Dean and Karen married to Alan. Leo has his roommate Doug (Adam Goldberg) and his dysfunctional family. His sister Rhonda is a lesbian. His father Barry lives with his grandpa and younger brother Jake.
This is a beautiful looking couple. Their romance could be more magical. It has Italy but it needs more romantic epic. Everett is not that big of a villain. In fact, their relationship is probably the third or fourth most compelling of the show. Doug and Karen is the most interesting. Jake has a great one episode Romeo&Juliet epic romance with guest star Holly Marie Combs. Even Jennifer's rotating love-life is competitive with them. This is produced by those who made 'Once and Again' and 'My So-Called Life'. There are some great episodes, an appealing central couple, and lots of great side characters.
