The Building is an American CBS television comedy that lasted only five episodes in 1993. Bonnie Hunt played Bonnie Kennedy, a commercial actress who was jilted by her fiance (George Clooney) shortly before the show started and moved back to Chicago to pick up the pieces of her life in an apartment across from Wrigley Field. The series focused on Kennedy's struggles and the characters who lived in her apartment building.

Making heavy use of Second City alum, the show was also filmed live; mistakes, accidents, and forgotten lines were often left in the aired episode.
