Storyline

Huge egos. Backbiting assistants. Screaming deadlines. Claudia "Claude" Casey has moved up in the secretarial world of television news, from permanent floater to the anchor's desk. It's a short elevator ride from the depths of the mailroom to the executive summit, but still the ice queen assistants give her a chilly reception. Now, can this perky former temp's warmth and humanity melt the hearts of the competitive up-and-comers? Written by Christy Varner <cavarner21@pennswoods.net>

Quick, witty comedy
30 October 2002 | by (Kelso, WA) – See all my reviews

This is a well done, quick, witty comedy that seems to improve as the cast begins to meld together. Sara Rue is absolutely wonderful. The writing is clever, and the production values good. Becoming my favorite series.
