Executive Stress

Show Summary

Caroline and Donald Fairchild have been married more than 25 years and produced five children that have grown up and left the nest. Donald works at Ginsberg, a book publishing company that is stuck in the old days. Caroline decides that she wants to re-enter the work scene and has in mind to return to her former career as a book editor and quickly lands a job with glitzy and up and coming Oasis Publishing, owned by a US conglomerate. Caroline reunites with her former secretary Anthea Duxbury, now Oasis' export sales director. The same day that Caroline starts her new job as editorial director, Oasis takes over Ginsberg and, Donald becomes the new sales and marketing director.

  • Superb British sit-com

    6.0
    Penelope Keith is great as Caroline Fielding Fairchild, a woman who returns to the publishing world after spending 20 years raising her children and taking care of her husband Donald, played by the always-great Geoffrey Palmer. The same day that Caroline starts her new job as editorial director, Oasis takes over Ginsberg and, Donald becomes the new sales and marketing director. Caroline and Donald now find themselves working for the same company. The must now keep their marriage a secret. This was a superb British sit-com with a top-notch cast. The writers each week came up with more and more situations that were taken right out the average work place. This is a worthwhile comedy and it’s a shame it didn’t get the airtime it deserved.
