series - (2000-2001; 13 x 60' episodes)

Inside his head, writer Bill Fearing lives in the treacherous and enigmatic world of his current story. But in his real life, he deals with an entirely different set of concerns from his teenage daughter Lenore's (Katee Sackhoff) adolescent angst to the sarcastic comments he must endure from his mother-in-law Grandma Lucy (Rae Allen), who came to live with the Fearings when she was given just one month to live, about five years ago. Always nearby and sometimes innocently adding to his natural anxious tendency is Cyn-thia (Susan Gibney), Bill's funny and sharp-tongued wife who does her best to bring sanity and reason back to the Fearing household.
