The series is about Annie, a single, thirty-something woman living in New York and her three friends, Didi, Roger and Elliot. The general premise of the series centers around Annie's search for romance. Most of the action takes place in either Annie's small apartment or the Employment Agency she manages. Roger and Elliot work with her at the agency and Didi, the semi free spirit of the group, often drops by the agency or Annie's apartment.[1]


The series was canceled after only one season despite having an average household rating of 11.4, tying it for 24th place among all TV shows that year.[2]
