What About Joan

Show Summary

Joan Gallagher (Joan Cusack) is a high school teacher who is proposed to by her boyfriend, Jake Evans (Kyle Chandler), after only six weeks. Jake is ready to commit, but Joan, confused and shocked, wants to take the relationship more slowly.

Joan's friend, a music teacher at the high school, is Betsy Morgan (Jessica Hecht). She's recently married Mark Ludlow (Wallace Langham), also a teacher. Joan and Betsy often turn to their mutual friend Dr. Ruby Stern (Donna Murphy), a psychiatrist, for advice. Alice Adams (Kellie Shanygne Williams) is Joan's friend and student teacher.

Shot entirely on location in Chicago, the series focuses on the private lives of an intimate group of friends and explores the complexity and endurance of close friendships among women, as well as the challenging relationship between Joan and Jake -- two bright, independent, experienced people -- as they blunder toward intimacy.

    Being from Chicago, Joan Cusack's hometown, I was very fond of this show from the get-go. It was an innovative idea: a show filmed outside of NY or LA? With a live studio audience? Will it work? I was lucky enough to attend quite a few tapings including some days where I experienced the behind-the-scene rehearsals. Right away I fell in love with the Joan-isms and humor of the show. I was glued to my tv every Tuesday when it aired and was very disappointed when ABC didn't support the show and pulled the plug. All I can hope for is that someday ABC will "throw us a bone" and decide to put it out on DVD along with the few episodes that were taped and never aired.moreless
