In this Chicago-set comedy, Joan Cusack plays a high strung high school teacher who just can't figure out exactly how to make things work with her hunky banker boyfriend (''Early Edition'' star Kyle Chandler). Adding a ''Sex and the City'' vibe to the series is Cusack's pack of chatty friends, sassy psychiatrist Ruby (Donna Murphy), and flaky Betsy (''Friends'' vet Jessica Hecht).
