Storyline

Huge egos. Backbiting assistants. Screaming deadlines. Claudia "Claude" Casey has moved up in the secretarial world of television news, from permanent floater to the anchor's desk. It's a short elevator ride from the depths of the mailroom to the executive summit, but still the ice queen assistants give her a chilly reception. Now, can this perky former temp's warmth and humanity melt the hearts of the competitive up-and-comers? Written by Christy Varner <cavarner21@pennswoods.net>

Really funny!!
16 October 2002 | by Roxburyfunny1See all my reviews

This show is great good cast and great story line. The humor is none stop and actors bring the show to life. With Sara Rue being the happy go lucky secretary and upcomer Zachary Levi being the biggest yet cutest jerk this show is made to succeed this show only lacks one thing. It's time needs to be 8:00 instead of 9:30 that way i can see Zach an hour and a half earlier. This show was made for abc and i hope this show will continue for a long while.
