If Not for You (CBS 1995, Hank Azaria, Elizabeth McGovern)



If Not For You

In sitcom If Not For You Jessie and Craig are both engaged but after meeting across a crowded Chinese restaurant they fall in love at first sight. They both then end up working at the same recording studio (Gopher Records) – Jessie in audio books, Craig a producer. The pair then had the difficult task of letting their fiancées down gently.

Interestingly the producers initially made an unaired pilot that featured a completely different supporting cast.
