  • The series begins with the four Sorelli sisters in the midst of their very complicated lives together. Oldest sister Ginnie, a high powered attorney is having difficulty on telling her husband that they are having a baby. Ann is dealing with the fact that her longterm relationship with her boyfriend Danny (guest star Dan Futterman) may be over. Marjee is in a rut on finding a restaurant to host a Pug Dog Benefit featuring Jillian Barbaree that will have live dogs. Also, college student Rose is having a hard time telling the family that she has switched college majors from Pre-Med to the Experimental Theatre Wing. The sisters are also dealing with the fact that their father, Joe (guest star Tom Irwin, "My So Called Life"), has just announced plans to marry his girlfriend, Renee (Christine Ebersole, Tony Award winner for "42nd Street"), a development that has left the women with conflicting emotions.moreless

    • Bob: Oh, I know. Let's get naked and figure out how you got pregnant in the first place.

    • Ginnie: Marjee, you are going to have to start learning how to figure things out on your own. Some day, I might not be around to help you out. Marjee: Okay, you’re acting really weird. Do you have some kind of terminal illness that has to do with soft drinks or something?

    • Marjee: I got it completely under control. I found a new place, and I've hired shuttle busses to take people from the old club to the new club. No, it'll be awesome. Yeah, we can call them "Pugmobiles."

    • Anne: "Postmodern Dance"? "Life as Ritual Performance"? Since when does N.Y.U. allow Pre-Med students a semester to lose their minds? Rose: Uh, I'm not Pre-Med anymore. Shut up. I changed majors. I'm at the School of the Arts and I'm majoring in Experimental Theater. Shut up. You can't get like you get with Marjee. You know, all noble, wanting us to do something important with our lives. Shut up! I hated Pre-Med. And I want to be an artist. And I had more fun working on my audition than I had in years of Organic Chemistry. Anne: Congratulations?

    • Ginnie: I love the phone chain. Grace: Here's an idea - why don't you call Ann and tell her to call Marjee, have her call Rose so she can tell Bob you're pregnant.

    • This pilot episode was watched by 2.77 million viewers.

    • After the series was picked up by the WB network, show creator Liz Tuccillo opted not to move from New York City to Los Angeles where the series is shot. In subsequent episode Liz Tuccillo remains an executive consultant on the series.

    • Even though the show takes place in New York City, the series is actually shot on soundstages and exterior sets in Burbank, California.

    • In the original pilot of "Related" the character Ann Sorelli (originally played by Laura San Giacomo) was the oldest sister and matriarch of the group. In the new verison of the pilot Ginnie Sorelli (Jennifer Esposito) is now the eldest sister while Ann (now played by Kiele Sanchez) is the second oldest.

    Trivia (2)

    • When Ginnie was changing in front of Annie, she was wearing a black bra. After talking with Annie, she turned back into her apartment and her bra strap is clearly brown/peach color.

    • In the phone chain scene with Rose and Marjee, Marjee's make up is a lot heavier than just moments before in her conversation with Ann. The Rose/Marjee scene is obviously reused footage from the unaired pilot.
