DRAMA

Something of a programming gambit for the channel, this sitcom is an awkward little thing, possibly too grown-up for kids, not really sophisticated enough for adults. Natalie Brown plays Sophie Parker, a talent agent who uncovers her long-term boyfriend’s infidelity—with a client!—just as their baby is due. Brown’s performance, at least initially, is cluttered up with all the farcical business of establishing Sophie’s predicament. She’s like Mary Louise Parker without the restraining weight of bitterness. Maybe the baby, arriving at the end of the first half hour, will soften and deepen the comedy.
