Trivia

NBC Programming Executive Brandon Tartikoff pitched the idea to Jay Tarses of doing a series about a single woman in her thirties, living in a big city. Tarses immediately thought of his friend Blair Brown for the lead. Tarses and Brown discussed how not to make the series into a formulaic sitcom. See more »

TRUE SATIRE
18 January 2004 | by ROSEMCCASee all my reviews

This series was a wacky satire of a female's life in New York City. Some would find it slightly surreal, but not a true New Yorker. Much more true-to-life than "Sex in the City", this was a real woman, real apartment, real doorman, etc. True, the apt was too large for her means, but maybe it was "rent-controlled/stabilized". Her doorman was very intelligent and witty, but I know some who are!

My favorite celebrity spotting was Nathan Lane who appeared in an early episode playing a putative employer and who, at the time, was so hilarious and appealed to me so much I said "He is going places!" How right I was. I also adored David Straithorn as her very shy bookstore-owner boyfriend.

I loved this show & would buy it on DVD or watch it in syndication!
