Union Square (TV series)

Union Square (TV series)

"Union Square" is a 1997 television sitcom that was broadcast on NBC for one season. It followed the story of a lawyer-turned-playwright in New York City, who attempted to gain inspiration from a host of characters populating the fictitious Union Square cafe in Manhattan, obviously inspired by the New York area of the same name.

The program replaced "The Single Guy" (which was cancelled at the end of the 1996-1997 season) on NBC's "Must See TV" night of programming; it was given an 8:30pm timeslot on Thursday evenings, a highly coveted spot due to its location between popular sitcoms "Friends" (which aired at 8:00pm) and "Seinfeld" (which aired at 9:00pm). Like "The Single Guy", "Union Square" attempted to capitalize on attractive singles in their 20s and 30s enjoying New York City life, which both "Seinfeld" and "Friends" (as well as other NBC programs) had turned into successes. Despite these advantages and the fact that it has the #8 spot in the ratings for the 1997-98 season with 13.3 million viewers, it was cancelled for unknown reasons on January 1998.

The cast included:

*Constance Marie.............Gabriella Diaz
*Michael Landes..............Michael
*Harriet Sansom Harris.......Suzanne Barkley
*Jim Pirri...................Jack Papas
*Jonathan Slavin.............Albie
*Christine Burke.............Carrie
*Jeffrey Anderson-Gunter.....Vince
