Passionate but neurotic news producer Jane Craig is a driven career woman, but she has decided that the time has come for her to make room in her life for romance. She thinks that the ideal candidate may be a flashy reporter by the name of Tom Grunnick, even though he represent a trend that she hates: that of putting more emphasis on entertainment than on news. Meanwhile, hardworking but nondescript correspondent Aaron Altman has a raging crush on Jane, but he doesn't think she has much chance of noticing him when she is smitten with the more alluring Tom.
