After a messy divorce with her very rich and powerful husband, Nora Wilde (Téa Leoni) refuses to accept his offer of 1.8 million dollars and tries to make it on her own. Being a Pulitzer nominated photographer, the only place that even considers hiring her is a sleazy tabloid named "The Comet". She is forced to accept their offer and starts working there as a regular papparazzo. Celebrities like Tom Hanks and Anna Nicole Smith appeared as themselves and try to fight off Nora's attempts to photograph them.Written by

Prior to the show's premiere, the network had erroneously promoted the show's title as "Wilde Again", playing on the lead character's surname. Closer to the premiere date, ABC aired a promo with Téa Leoni comically explaining the error and the correct title. See more »

Tea Leoni plays Nora Wilde, a serious photographer, who is going through a bad divorce. She wants her freedom but it comes at a cost. She wants to legitimate photography but is hired to work for the tabloids as a paparazzi. Her boss is played by the wonderful and divine Holland Taylor. The show was well-written most of the time. TEa's Nora was beginning to develop into quite a memorable character but the network just didn't support comedy and they still don't. Even when they brought in George Wendt from Cheers, they made unnecessary changes in casting and characters. The show was fine in the beginning and the audience was getting used to it but then the network botches it up like a bad plastic surgery.
