Emma Brody is a young, single all-American woman who leaves behind her dysfunctional family in Toledo, Ohio to take a job as the vice consul at the U.S. Embassy in London, England where she squares off against her no-nonsense boss, Elque Polk, and has a meeting of minds with CIA attache Doug Roach and her new co-workers in dealing with various political cases.

A promising new show, 'The American Embassy' was pulled far too quickly after only a few short episodes. Arija Bareikis, who played the main character, looked poised to fill the void left when 'Ally McBeal' ended its run. Unfortunately, Fox didn't allow this upstart to gain an audience, which is certainly a shame. While the cast made the show watchable, it was the general topic that made the show interesting - finally a somewhat "exotic" show about diplomats and their jobs after the flood of shows about lawyers, doctors, and inept family men. And to think that a promising show such as this was replaced with so much Fox reality show trash is truly a shame.
