Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Adam (George Eads) makes his living as a dog walker for the wealthy New Yorkers who live near the Central Park district. So dedicated is Adam to his work that his family and friends are worried that he will never emerge from his professional shell and find a suitable wife. At present, Adam is apartment-sitting for one of his best customers, millionaire executive A.J. Preston. While thus employed, the hero "meets cute" with fellow dog fancier Rachel (Jane Krakowski), who jumps to the obvious conclusion and assumes that Adam and A.J. Preston are one and the same. Smitten by Rachel, Adam wonders if he should tell her the truth and risk losing her affections. By the time the plot is resolved thanks to the intervention of Adam's agoraphobic neighbor Selma (Brenda Vaccaro), the plot has taken many an unexpected twist and turn, including an episode involving a mysterious Chilean businessman and a strange package. Filmed in Montréal under the title The Dog Walker, the made-for-cable Just a Walk in the Park premiered over the ABC Family Channel on August 18, 2002.
