Storyline

Huge egos. Backbiting assistants. Screaming deadlines. Claudia "Claude" Casey has moved up in the secretarial world of television news, from permanent floater to the anchor's desk. It's a short elevator ride from the depths of the mailroom to the executive summit, but still the ice queen assistants give her a chilly reception. Now, can this perky former temp's warmth and humanity melt the hearts of the competitive up-and-comers? Written by Christy Varner <cavarner21@pennswoods.net>

Great Show
14 October 2002 | by jewelp24See all my reviews

As soon as I found out Andy Dick was on this show I knew I had to watch it. I loved him on Newsradio and it's great to see him playing a character that's a little less than smart. I also think Sara Rue is great. Her character is human and easy to relate to. I hope this show has a long run.
