Show Summary

Committed is the latest comedy with an edge from creators/executive producers Eileen Heisler and DeAnn Heline (“Roseanne,” “Murphy Brown” and “Ellen”) that casts an off-kilter eye on the bizarre whirlwind courtship of two opposites who attract each other despite outrageous circumstances. Brilliant yet neurotic Nate (Josh Cooke, “Century City”) is a tightly wound ball of phobias until he accidentally unravels when he meets eccentric yet eternally upbeat Marni (Emmy Award winner Jennifer Finnigan, NBC’s “Crossing Jordan”). As fearful Nate and fearless Marni awkwardly begin their mating dance -- amid the eclectic craziness of New York -- their relationship’s yin and yang somehow match despite a closet-full of obstacles. In fact, free spirit Marni has a “dying clown” (Tom Poston, “Newhart”) quietly living in her apartment’s closet (she inherited the homesteading clown, who came packaged with the apartment). Bowie (Darius McCrary, “Family Matters”), Nate’s friend and co-worker in a vintage record store, offers forceful advice while Marni contends with her sardonic friend Tess (Tammy Lynn Michaels, “The L Word”), the reluctant and semi-irresponsible nanny across the hall who might be even closer to the edge than she is. Tolerant and optimistic, Marni finds herself drawn to the endearing Nate despite his obsessive compulsions – and he can’t resist her loopy orbit in a quirky relationship straight out of Lewis Carroll’s looking glass. Unique as each one is, perhaps they’ll put their pieces together and defy the odds as they form an irresistible couple whose fresh connection may yet endure. NBC Broadcast History January 4, 2005 - March 15, 2005 -- Tuesdays 9:30pm ET In Canada: Thursdays @ 8:30 PM E/P on Global. (Simulcast in HDTV)moreless
