About the Character

Lucy is a temp at the firm that Dave works at and a little bit weird and maybe somewhat crazy. She is also someone who doesn't really care about what people think of her and is blunt and very direct and says what's on her mind even if that is admitting that she wants to kill everyone in the office. She is also a bad influence on Dave which he doesn't seem to mind since being with her makes him feel like the normal one.


The series was pulled from the schedule on December 14, 2006 after 9 episodes.
On May 15, 2007, ABC canceled the series after one season with 4 epsiodes unaired.
The series was a single-camera sitcom.
Majandra, Lindsay Sloane (who played Ted Danson's daughter) and Charlie Finn (who played Dave) were later cast in ABC's comedy pilot "Pulling". Sadly, the series didn't get picked up.
