The series, loosely based on creator Chris Henchy's relationship with wife Brooke Shields, begins on that chance meeting. Patrick Owen (David Sutcliffe), a down-to-earth and dedicated high school teacher, grabs a cup of coffee with his best friend and fellow teacher Stevie (Danny Comden), when he's bitten by a dog. The owner of the dog is famous movie star Alex Young (Teri Polo). Over her apologies, Patrick recognizes Alex and makes light of the situation. Before leaving, Alex gives Patrick her phone number so he can contact her for any medical costs incurred.
Despite the incessant pleading of Stevie to call her, Patrick feels that Alex is out of his league. Back at Alex's house, her overprotective and cynical sister, Cheri (Rhea Seehorn), panics about the dog biting and how Alex could give a complete stranger their phone number. Alex is not as suspicious, and slightly hopeful that he'll call. Cheri has her doubts, thinking it's a bad idea for Alex to be interested in a "civilian" (someone not in the biz). However, fate and chemistry prove stronger than perceived impressions, and Alex and Patrick begin dating. Patrick is unprepared for the chaos that comes with Alex. He loses his anonymity and is stalked by paparazzi that jeopardizes his job.
The season finale, which was also the series finale, was left on a cliffhanger which was never resolved as the series was canceled after 22 episodes.
