Storyline

Caroline Fairchild returns to work as an Editorial Director for Oasis Publishing after spending the last 25 years raising her five children. Her husband, Donald Fairchild works for Gingsberg, also a publishing house. Oasis buys out Ginsberg and now Caroline and Donald are working for the same company. But, Oasis has a rule that doesn't allow married couples to work together. Since Caroline applied for the job under her maiden name Fielding, she decides not to quit her new job. Instead Donald and Caroline must pretend not to know one another in order for them to continue on with their careers. Written by Chessica Moon

PLEASE make available for Region 1
25 March 2019 | by trpdeanSee all my reviews

There aren't greater actors in a situation comedy than Penelope Keith, Geoffrey Palmer and Peter Bowles - Americans have loved them in their various series for decades

Yet for some reason, this series is unavailable to rent or purchase in Region 1 DVDs. PLEASE make them available!
