The unaired pilot for the show featured similar characters, but a different premise. In the unaired pilot, Hannah is a high powered editor in a love triangle with Marty and another man, played by D.W. Moffett. The network liked the characters, but asked that the show be retooled to eliminate the love triangle and change the Hannah/Marty relationship before ordering it to series. See more »
To echo other reviewers, this series recalls both the thirties "madcap" comedies and the cerebral Tracy/Hepburn collaborations. Lewis, criticized as a Woody Allen imitator, pulls away from that allegation/limitiation and holds his own opposite Curtis, a boss of the production. It's been a long time and it's difficult for me to recall specifics, but this one needs to be unearthed - look at all the crud that's made it to DVD already!
Similar productions that come to mind would be the British series "Solo" (with Felicity Kendal). There's also the suggestion of an updated and more grownup "Georgy Girl" - but more upbeat (no gross hospital scenes)...
