From one of the Emmy Award-winning producers of the mega-hit “Frasier” comes an ensemble comedy featuring four unpredictable women working together in a Manhattan real estate office. These very different career women are at various stages in their lives and, when they’re not catering to high-end clients, they’re coping with their own personal predicaments.
Fortysomething realtor Ava Summerlin (Gail O’Grady) runs the Hot Properties real estate firm. This former party animal is totally in love with her new husband, a handsome 25-year-old who doesn’t know her real age — a fact her co-workers remind her of often. Ava and her husband want to start a family as soon as possible, but something’s not right and Ava wonders if it’s her age or his “swimmers” that are preventing their dream from coming true.
Then there is Chloe Reid (Nicole Sullivan), who could find happiness with any guy who could simply remember her the day after their date. A self-help book junkie, Chloe is still digesting the book that has helped her realize that no one has ever been that “into” her.
Recently divorced after being married to a gay man — unknowingly — for ten years, voluptuous Lola Hernandez (Sof’a Vergara) needs to sharpen her “gay-dar” before jumping back into the dating pool — which she dreads. Unafraid to speak her mind, Lola seems oblivious to the effect she has on men.
The latest addition to this eclectic work group is the young, rich and never-worked-a-day-in-her-life Emerson Ives (Christina Moore). Emerson instantly bonds with the women — who began their relationship with her as her real estate agents — upon learning that her supposedly virginal fiancï¿½ was anything but.
Down the hall, the ladies’ office neighbors consist of cute, divorced therapist Dr. Sellers Boyd (Evan Handler), who analyzes and overthinks everything, and cocky, sexy dermatologist Dr. Charlie Thorpe (Stephen Dunham), a guys’ guy who shoots from the hip and likes to keep things on a skin-deep level.
The floor’s receptionist and resident busybody is Mary (Amy Hill), mother of five and married forever. She delivers messages and packages to the gang, as well as unsolicited advice and the latest gossip.
Strong friendships are fueled by all these distinct personalities. Though they may be at different points in their lives, these friends and officemates share a common bond of being there for each other through thick and thin.
“Hot Properties” stars Gail O’Grady as Ava Summerlin, Nicole Sullivan as Chloe Reid, Sof’a Vergara as Lola Hernandez, Christina Moore as Emerson Ives, Stephen Dunham as Dr. Charlie Thorpe, Evan Handler as Dr. Sellers Boyd and Amy Hill as Mary.
