Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Though Lloyd Rockwell (Rob Lowe) and Susie Wilding (Anna Friel) both work for the same international advertising agency, they have never met: Lloyd lives in New York, while Susie is headquartered in London. New developments in their professional lives compel Lloyd and Susie to trade places, with Lloyd moving into Susie's cluttered suburban-London cottage, and Susie relocating to Lloyd's streamlined Manhattan apartment. Whenever domestic or job-related problems arise, Lloyd and Susie contact each other by phone--a painful process, inasmuch as they don't like each other. But this situation reverses itself after Susie comes to Lloyd's rescue when he is sabotaged by a duplicitous coworker. Only oe problem remaining: Lloyd is already engaged to be married. Filmed in Toronto and London, the made-for-TV Perfect Strangers was based on the book by Robyn Sisman) and produced by the same team responsible for Bridget Jones' Diary: the film debuted October 17, 2004, on CBS.
