written by Paul J. Murphy (D'Angelo)
The following is a SHORT synopsis of the pilot
|Married for over twenty years, former
high-school sweethearts Paul and Patty Murphy are the perfect couple
that, and that's one of the major reasons that Paul is a successful marriage counselor and
the best-selling author of five self-help relationship books: Endless Honeymoon,
Wedded Bliss for Dummies, Relentless Love, Mr. & Mrs. Right: Until Death Do Us Part
and Every Day Can Be Valentine's Day.
What his admiring fans don't know is that Paul and Patty just got drunk and obtained a
"quickie" divorce while vacationing in Mexico because they can't stand each
other anymore! Their impromptu break-up sounds like a good idea, until the Murphys realize
that splitting-up will most-likely destroy Paul's reputation and they won't be able to
maintain their extravagant upper-middle-class lifestyle, put their two spoiled kids
through college and support Patty's insatiable spending habits.
Reluctantly, Paul & Patty agree to create the appearance that they are still the
happily married couple the naïve public thinks they are until they can somehow come-up
with a solution
but it's not going to be easy because their nosy next-door neighbor,
sleazy divorce-attorney Sonny Swift (the hilarious Bob Seibel) is determined to bring down
the man whose success is disrupting his shady law practice. Snooping Sonny gets all
worked-up when Paul invites a feuding couple over for dinner in a desperate effort to
wiggle-out of this awkward predicament
and the results are hysterical!
A Fine Mess was created and written by Paul D'Angelo, the former Boston-area Assistant DA
and criminal-defense attorney turned comedian/writer, who the LA Times has referred to as
"quite likely the funniest entertainer you've never heard of
co-stars the incomparable actress/comedienne Patty Ross (Buffy The Vampire Slayer;
Roseanne; Two Girls and a Guy) in a well-written, character-driven series that has all the
potential to become an instant classic.
