Jenna Elfman returns to television in a comedy about an attractive secretary with simple goals: find true love, have an exciting career and have a normal relationship with her father. But in a world where men behave like, well… men, she realizes that she may be overly ambitious.
Alex’s attempt to take her relationship to the next level with her boyfriend backfires, and her scoundrel of a boss, Charles, expects her to be on call 24/7. Her co-worker, Chris, thinks that speed dating is the answer to Alex’s problems with men, while her other co-worker, Jan is only around to collect a pay check.
Alex works alongside her father, Bill, at his law firm, and while he is very proud of her, it pains him that his daughter is not married yet. If Bill had his way, Alex would settle down with her colleague, Stephen, a star lawyer at their firm who is obviously smitten with Alex. Julian, Alex's charming British neighbor, who makes his living as an artist, and Molly, her loyal and brutally honest assistant, are the two people she chooses to lean on for advice.
However no amount of advice could prepare her for the unexpected feelings she's having for Scott, an impulsive, renaissance man, who she recently met while trying to negotiate a deal involving his tavern. If Alex can put down her cell phone for long enough, her successes in love just might catch up to an already successful career.
