In this TV sitcom, veteran L.A. local-news anchor Brian Benben (portrayed by Brian Benben) and his co-anchor are replaced by chart-topping Ken-and-Barbie news "personalities" -- Tabitha Berkeley (Lisa Thornhill) and former VH1 veejay Chad Rockwell (Charles Esten). TV reporter Freddy Fontaine (Steven Gilborn) was killed while doing a story about the zoo's ape exhibit, so Brian now has to deal with his new assignment as a human-interest reporter, beginning with a feature on some eccentric older ladies. For love interest, there's Benben's next-door neighbor Beverly Shippel (Susan Blommaert). Filmed in L.A., this series premiered September 21, 1998 on CBS.
