    I like Megyn Price! It’s a shame she’s been replaced. Although I think she’s more suited to straight up comedies and this seems to be a project that’s more on the dramatic side of comedy in which case, Constance is a great replacement.

  2. K says:

    I’m just excited for Ashley Scott’s comeback!

    Hey Guys, this will NOT be Lifetime’s 1st scripted comedy. They had two back in ’98. MAGGIE-which starred Ann Cusack and lasted one season and OH BABY!, which starred Cynthia Stevenson that kind lasted 2 years.

    First scripted comedy? Did they not air Rita Rocks and Sherri a few seasons back?

  5. StupidPeopleShutUp says:

    Josh Kelly is adorable. Glad to see he’s got a new gig since my beloved OLTL bit the dust. Again.

    Isn’t she the girl from Good Morning, Miami? Opposite the guy from Royal Pains? (God I’m so old!)

    • N tTVf says:

      Yep, the show also had Ashley Williams and Suzanne Pleshette in the cast. I realize now, so many years later, what a fine cast that was on ‘Miami.’

      Good thing we saw that series back when we were both 10 years old – that doesn’t make us very old at all now!

      I’m very happy to see Constance Zimmer join this series – she’s a very special talent.

  7. I was a lot more excited about this when Megyn was attached.
