Gordon Stiles' life is not easy. He's an executive whose boss, Mr. Peterson is overbearing, demanding, and insufferable. His brother, Jimmy, is an actor but one would have to wonder if he could spell it much less actually do it. While waiting for his big break, he relies on Gordon for all his necessities. And if it that wasn't enough, Gordon's wife has left him, and he has to raise their son, Dan, on his on, cause Jimmy is not exactly reliable. But he was most fortunate to have met Kelly O'Malley, a grad student, and she has a way with Dan and hires her to be Dan's nanny. Now Kelly can't help but also get involved with Gordon's personal life and vice versa. But they come to rely on each other.
