Trivia

Originally conceived as a vehicle for latina actress Mel Gorham, the original pilot was centered around Gorham as a wacky worker in a Florida souvenir shop who moved to New York and found herself at a diner surrounded by equally wacky characters. Before it aired, the network and producers decided Gorham wasn't the right fit for the series, and the show was retooled as more of an ensemble piece, with Constance Marie in the now-reduced role vacated by Gorham.

A Show that got lost in the hubbub of Seinfeld
27 September 2003 | by BaileySEASee all my reviews

True enough some awful NBC sitcoms were put in the Thursday Night Must-See TV time slot before or after Seinfeld. Fortunately "Union Square" was one of them that was exceptional. I liked, and looked forward to it every Thursday night in the 1997-98 TV season. The wonderful Harriet Sansom-Harris (Desperate Housewives ABC-TV) was part of the ensemble cast. The underrated Michael Landes (the first Jimmy Olsen on Lois & Clark) was another cast member. I was sorry to see it go. NBC should have stuck with it. It ran a thirteen episode run before it was cancelled. It was fast, witty repartee that is sadly missing from most sitcoms. It was one of those sitcoms you could listen to and not have to watch the action.
