Storyline

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 Danny Paikov <deepee@netvision.net.il>

Trivia

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 »

The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
25 July 2003 | by BabsiesSee all my reviews

This is the only way I can describe the 3 seasons of this show. As with other shows that aren't in a league with "Friends" and "Frasier", the Powers That Be 'retooled' the show after the first season (the Good). Then the show just went from Bad to Ugly and was gone. I became a fan of Téa Leoni because of this show--back then, she was correctly described as "a cross between Lucille Ball and Sharon Stone"--and I was very disappointed when they 'retooled' and eventually cancelled the show (by that time, I was just happy they put it out of it's misery). This is a classic example of If-it-ain't-broke-don't-fix-it Syndrome. (And, by the way, calling Mark Roberts' character 'Stupid Dave' was funny!!!) I'm still a fan of Téa's (and her husband--I think his name is David-something;~}), and if this was the show that put her on the map, then it was worth it.
