Storyline

Journalist Amy Pearce's dreams come true when she is able to transfer from her newspaper job in Toronto to London to work at its sister newspaper, the London Daily Post. The transfer was made possible by the newspapers' wealthy owner, Lord Oldenberg. Life in London does not initially turn out to be what Amy had envisioned. The Post's editor-in-chief, Max Hardman, places Amy in what is called the Fem-Post section of the newspaper - the women's issue section - under the direction of the limelight craving section editor, Jemima Whitfield Pennington Green. Jemima initially gives Amy no writing assignments, and when she eventually does, she takes the credit by inserting her own byline. And Amy hates her co-worker, Billy Marshall, the award-winning business reporter, who encourages her to go home if she doesn't like the work. Amy's personal life is only marginally better.

Balaban appealing
21 September 2016 | by See all my reviews

Amy Pearce (Liane Balaban) is happy to be a new reporter at the London Daily Post getting transferred from Toronto by owner Oldenberg (Maury Chaykin). Three months later, she would become tabloid fodder. Despite wanting to do serious reporting, chief editor Max Hardman puts her in the women's section to do style, fashion, celebrity, and gossip. Her new boss Jemima Green makes her push the coffee cart. Billy Marshall is the seemingly-arrogant award-winning reporter. Her flatmates are party people Poppy Young and Sami Rahim. She meets Edward Walpole who crashes into her bed. He and her flatmates introduce her to a life of partying. When she finally gets to write, her boss steals her byline.

The production is rather middling TV movie. The story is basic single gal fish out of water rom-com. None of it is that good other than Balaban. She's a very appealing actress. She makes the material better. She's smart and really likable. Otherwise, there is nothing new here. The writing is not exceptionally funny. Overall, it's slightly above pass.
