TV show description:
A multi-camera comedy series created by Paul Reiser and Danny Jacobson, Mad About You revolves around the relationship of newlyweds Paul Buchman (Reiser), a documentary filmmaker, and Jamie Stemple Buchman (Hunt), a public relations specialist. The pair live in a New York City apartment with their beloved dog, Murray (Maui). Paul found Murray as a puppy and Paul met Jamie while walking him.
The couple’s family and friends include Lisa Stemple (Ramsay), Jamie’s neurotic older sister; Jamie’s best friend, public relations professional Fran Devanow (Kenzle); Paul’s close friend and cousin, Ira Buchman (Pankow); Paul’s parents, Burt (Zorich) and Sylvia (Harris); and Fran’s ex-husband, Doctor Mark Devanow (Kind).
In the show’s sixth and penultimate season on NBC, Paul and Jamie have a daughter, Mabel.
In 2019, Mad About You was revived for an eighth season on Spectrum Originals. The story picks up with Paul and Jamie many years later, as they drop Mabel off at a nearby college. The couple enters a new phase of their lives, as empty-nesters.
