This sitcom in named after two of the six main characters, each with a name rather suggesting the other gender: Jaqueline 'Jack' and David 'Jill' Jillefski, who gradually realize they were in love at first sight. The other main characters are brilliant but insecure med student Barto, philosopher-barman Mikey, a natural womanizer who cultivates immaturity and disarming charm, Broadway-actress-dancer Audrey, who becomes Barto's girl, and Elisa Cronkite, Jack's colleague at the TV station. Written by
Amelia Heinle was originally cast as Jack, but after the pilot was replaced by Amanda Peet. See more »
I'm sure you realize the chances of sustaining oneself as a dancer long-term are so slim. Have you thought about what you'll do in the event that things don't work out in the long run?
Well, actually I thought I'd snag a young medical student and get him to marry me before he realizes what a lowbrow loser I am.

This is one of the SWEETEST shows I've ever seen in a really long while! Our local tv station just started airing Jack & Jill a couple of weeks ago and when I caught the trailer one afternoon, I was thinking to myself, "I MUST watch this one". I have to admit that initially, that decision was spurred by the sight of Ivan Sergei (whom I found familiar but I couldn't place him till I read bout him being in Once A Thief). I'm sure a lot of folks out there agree with me when I say he's extremely cute!?!! ARGH! That cleft chin! That crooked grin! Man, it just drives me straight over the edge hehehe. But because the show is aired every Saturday night at 11pm (yes I know - not exactly the best time, plus the fact that I'm not that much of a tv watcher in the first place) I missed out on the first few episodes. So finally I was home alone one boring Saturday night, channel-surfing and I chanced upon Jack & Jill and this might sound a lil cliche but I've been hooked ever since! I just COULDN'T stop laughing cuz it was so funny! Seeing Jack with that beaten-up-puppy look on his face - AHHHHHHHHHH! HE'S SIMPLY ADORABLE! I mean yes, the storylines can get a tad predictable but there's just SUCH a vibe between the 2 leads and nobody ever gets tired of watching lovey dovey shows like these, do they? Romantic comedies rule! I'm SO glad to hear that it's gone on to a second season over in the States and I certainly hope the local tv station will continue to air the show in the future. I'm telling you - it's definitely worth staying at home for on a Saturday night!
