Elfman portrays Alex Rose, a successful, single attorney who works with her father Bill (Dabney Coleman) at his law firm. Alex struggles with dating while looking for love in a big city. Her father wants her to settle down with her coworker Stephen, a star lawyer at the firm who is smitten with her. She prefers Scott (Josh Randall), the tavern owner she meets in the first episode, who her father doesn't approve of. Alex relies on the advice of her assistant Molly (Jillian Bach) and British neighbor Julian (Hugh Bonneville).
This show's working titles were Everything I Know about Men and The Jenna Elfman Show. The stage for the office where Alex works is a redressed version of the Winfred-Louder Department Store set used by The Drew Carey Show.

The show's theme song was performed by Nikka Costa.
