TV show description:
When her father moves away to take a job in Tokyo, 16-year-old Holly Tyler (Amanda Bynes) moves into the Manhattan apartment of her 28-year-old sister, Valerie (Jennie Garth). The two couldn’t be more different from one another.
Holly is rambunctious and energetic and wants to take full advantage of all that New York has to offer. She becomes friends with nerdy Gary Thorpe (Wesley Jonathan) and dates guys like Henry Gibson (Michael McMillian), British Ben Sheffield (David de Lautour), and her true love, Vince (Nick Zano).
Valerie is far more uptight and neurotic than her sister and works as a public relations executive, eventually starting her own firm. Her friends include competitive co-worker Lauren (Leslie Grossman) and trampy Tina Haven (Allison Munn). Along the way, she dates commitment phobic Jeff Campbell (Simon Rex); boss Peter (Stephen Dunham); an old flame, Rick (Edward Kerr); and finally Vic Meladeo (Dan Cortese).
