Mad About You by Sinead MoriartyEmma and James Hamilton have weathered lots of storms in their ten-year marriage. From the heartbreak of infertility, to the craziness of then becoming parents to two babies in one year, to coping with James losing his job, somehow they have always worked as a team.
However, the pressure of moving from Dublin to London for Jamess new job - away from familiar surroundings and the family Emma loves - puts them under stress like never before. So when James starts getting texts from a stranger - texts that show startling insights into their lives - Emma is not sure what to think. She is far from home, isolated and before long finds herself questioning everything about their relationship.
Maybe those texts are telling her the truth and the life she believed to be solid and secure is just a mirage. Somehow she has to get a grip, but how can she do that when a stranger is set on driving Emma out of her home and her marriage?
Paul Reiser on Reviving ‘Mad About You’: ‘There’s Still Comedy To Be Mined’
Kill Bill: Vol. Sign in. Get a quick look at the the week's trailers, including Villains , Countdown , Like a Boss , and more. Watch now. Title: The Final Frontier 24 May Flash forward a number of years.
You know it's sweep month on television when bad things start happening to good people:. On "Roseanne," Roseanne's husband, Dan Conner, has a heart attack. On "N. Blue," Andy Sipowicz's son gets gunned down, sending Andy hurtling off the wagon. On "Law and Order," the prosecutor Jill Hennessy goes into a coma. In what may be the riskiest of the many life crises afflicting television characters this May, "Mad About You" has introduced friction, extramarital kissing and even separation into the previously nudgy and cuddly lives of the Buchmans. This Sunday night at 8, the breakup culminates in what networks often breathlessly label a "very special episode.
Reiser and executive producer Danny Jacobson, who got married within weeks of one another and had similar discoveries about married life, developed the show together. Paul Reiser and Danny Jacobson pitched NBC executives Warren Littlefield and Jamie Tarses a show about the life of a couple in private—not the version you'd see at a party, but the more honest version that comes after that. The two also compared their show to thirtysomething , but promised that it would be "shorter and funnier. Reiser met Helen Hunt—who at the time was sharing a house with a good friend of Reiser's wife —at a dinner party. Though Hunt wanted to focus on her burgeoning movie career, the pilot script changed her mind. Hunt won out when she "brilliantly" imitated Reiser trying to decide what to eat, one of the scenes in the pilot.
