Ink Journalists Kate Montgomery (Mary Steenburgen) and Mike Logan (Ted Danson) married three months after meeting on the White House lawn. Although the marriage didn’t last, there are two common threads between them — their 15-year-old daughter, Abby (Alana Austin), and their all-consuming adoration of the newspaper ink that rubs off on their fingers.
While Mike has become one of New York’s larger-than-life journalists, Kate’s hard-nosed reporting from around the world has earned her an impressive reputation. When Kate accepts a job offer that’s just too good to pass up, she becomes the first female managing editor of the New York Sun — and she’s now Mike’s boss, as well.
Her staff also includes a no-nonsense, seen-it-all police reporter, Ernie Trainor (Charlie Robinson); an intense and somewhat neurotic financial reporter, Alan Mesnick (Saul Rubinek); the On the Town columnist, Belinda Carhardt (Christine Ebersole), who has a few miles on her, and the newsroom’s jaded and judgmental editorial assistant, Donna French (Jenica Bergere), who manages to remain ultra-hip in a sea of tweeds and khakis.
