A spoof of crime documentaries about the arrest and trial of a beloved poetry professor from a small town in South Carolina, who is accused of brutally murdering his wife, and the young Northeastern lawyer hired to defend him.
After penniless cook Matt Landis marries businessman Victor Pellet's spoiled daughter Alex, they agree to save money for his dream to start his own restaurant by moving in with the Pellets. For 'outsider' Matt, this starts years of aggravation, mainly because Alex's dad is domineering and remains overprotective, with a strong hold over his daughter. Furthermore various habits and attitudes keep clashing. Written by
This show rocks! It's a great concept which will undoubtedly open itself up to some hysterical story lines, as long as the writers don't resort to goofy misunderstandings in the vein of "Three's Company." The well-built cast shows great promise to emerge as tv's newest powerhouse, as Smart and Farina bring some much-needed intelligence to a tv schedule packed with inane 20-somethings.
