Jack & Jill is an American television series comedy-drama starring Ivan Sergei, Amanda Peet, Jaime Pressly, Justin Kirk, Simon Rex and Sarah Paulson which ran from September 1999 to April 2001 on the WB Network. It was created and executive produced by Randi Mayem Singer.

Production[edit]

The main characters were David Jillefsky (Ivan Sergei), and Jacqueline Barrett (Amanda Peet, replacing Amelia Heinle after the pilot). The two become romantically involved just as they both face major obstacles in their relationships with their significant others. The show's theme song was "Truth About Romeo" written by Pancho's Lament, the stage name of songwriter Jeff Cohen.[citation needed] It was performed by Pancho's Lament during the first season and by David Crosby in the second season.[citation needed]

Due to the average ratings of the first season, the second season was only 13 episodes long and was aired as a midseason show. The final episode detailed the problems during preparations for the couple's wedding. Jacqueline discovered she was pregnant, but before she could tell David, he decided that their relationship was moving too fast and he wanted to call the wedding off and move things slower. Despite the rallying of fans, the series was not renewed for a third season, so the series ended in a cliffhanger.

The series was nominated for a best casting award in 2000 by the Casting Society of America for Best Casting for TV, Dramatic Pilot.

Co-stars Amanda Peet and Sarah Paulson would later reunite for the NBC series Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip, which debuted in 2006.
