was created by Jeff Strauss & Jeff Greenstein, and James Burrows lent his directing skills to the production (he directed the first group of episodes). Both Greenstein & Strauss worked on the comedy hit Friends
, and cult favorite Dream On. Greenstein also worked on Will & Grace
. The show was produced by Jeff & Jeff Productions, which also produced the FOX series Getting Personal
. James Burrows
is the director’s gold standard (the go-to guy when you want a high quality director). The series starred Jon Cryer pre-Two and a Half Men, and pre-The OC Tate Donovan. The show had a strong cast and crew, but failed to make it past the first season on FOX.
Owen (Tate Donovan
) and Bob (Jon Cryer
) are partners at an architect firm. The series starts with Owen and Alicia (Maria Pitillo
) engaged to be married. Complications arise, though, when Bob and Alicia meet. Alicia and Bob do not particularly like the other.
