P.R. was a Canadian television sitcom, which aired on CBC Television in 2000. The show starred Diane Flacks as Alexandra Reed and Ellie Harvie as Jill Hayes, partners in a public relations firm. Fiona Reid also starred as office manager Dierdre Duncan, a mysterious older British woman in the vein of The AvengersEmma Peel who frequently hints at a shady past.

The show was widely characterized in the media as a Canadian adaptation of Absolutely Fabulous, although its humour was much less camp.[citation needed]

Synopsis[edit]

P.R. stars Diane Flacks, Ellie Harvie and Fiona Reid, as high-profile public relations representatives in this behind-the-scenes look at the industry people love to hate. Alex Reed (Diane Flacks) is a fast-talker, liar, partier and the owner of Alexandra Reed & Associates, an up-and-coming metropolitan public relations firm. She and her partner (Ellie Harvie) create news and hype events in order to publicize an elite list of actors and celebrities. As their careers spin out of control, their personal lives do as well, leading to many quirky misadventures.
