The somewhat flirtatious, ever charming Daniel 'Dan' Collins, who has criminal connections from his past, investigates as an insurance investigator (effectively as private detective) crimes which (can) cost the insurance company a fortune in extant and/or future damage claims it hopes to pass on to the criminals or avoid altogether as poisoned fruit. His less experienced partner, Zoe Busick, gave up her job in Las Vegas as blackjack dealer when her sister died in a car accident, so she could raise her teenage nieces Taylor and Hannah and nephew Clifford "Cliff" Woodall in Chicago.

This was a wonderful series from Lifetime which was canceled. For some reason, Lifetime kept Missing and not this. Both Wild Card and Missing were revamped for season 2, and I felt that Missing suffered. Guess I was alone. Wild Card starred Joely Fisher and Chris Potter, who were wonderful together as insurance investigators in season one and then as regular investigators in season 2, when their firm was taken over by the delightful Loretta Divine.
Fisher played Zoe, a former Vegas Jill of all trades who has to move to Chicago when her sister is killed. She inherits her sister's children and sets about raising them and earning a living as well. Fisher brought a real woman sexiness, beauty, humor, and tremendous charm to the role. Her Zoe and the breezy tone of this series will be missed. By me. I guess Lifetime is too busy with Missing to miss Wild Card.
