Synopsis by Hal Erickson
On her deathbed, Rachel Myer (Gail O'Grady) rallies long enough to provide her seven-year-old daughter Amy with a foolproof "timeline" to achieve great success in life. Growing up to become a prominent Seattle lawyer, Amy (played as an adult by Kimberly Williams-Paisley) has never gone wrong following her late mother's advice. Crucial to the timeline is her quest for the perfect husband. As pre-determined by her mom, the lucky man will have to be Amy's seventh boyfriend. Unfortunately, Amy has fallen deeply in love with Boyfriend Number Six, a good-looking, if somewhat pompous, young blade named Daniel (Brad Rowe). So as not to upset the continuum, Amy must shop around for an "alternate" number six, enabling Daniel to emerge as number seven. The man ultimately chosen for the express purpose of being dumped by Amy is Peter Connor (Patrick Dempsey), a former Wall Street broker now running a small bagel store. Anyone who has ever seen one of those Ginger Rogers or Rosalind Russell romantic comedies of the 1940s should have little difficulty predicting the outcome of this story. The made-for-cable Lucky Seven premiered July 20, 2003, on the ABC Family Channel.
