Unhitched is a new 30 minute comedy series that centers on four 30-somethings who’ve recently split up from their respective long term relationships and are now facing the scary world of dating once again. Jack “Gator” Gately (Bierko) already thought he found “the one” but now he’s newly single and ready to try and find another “one.” Tommy (Sneed) has been divorced three times and now owns a microbrewery. Tommy loves beer, food and women (in no particular order). Dr. Freddy Sahgal (Majumder) is a heart surgeon who has no skills when it comes to the opposite sex. Finally there’s Kate (Jones), the attorney that handled all three guys’ divorces and recently got dumped after a seven-year engagement.
There’s two reasons why I’ll be tuning in to check out the pilot for this show: Rashida Jones and The Farrelly brothers. When I heard Jones was going to be doing this show (which was originally supposed to be titled The Rules for Starting Over), I immediately felt less sad that she was leaving The Office. As for the Farrelly brothers' involvement, they're not only exec-producing the series, they also directed the pilot. As a fan of their films, I’m very interested in seeing if the series carries any of the traits of their wacky, occasionally over-the-top blend of humor and romance.
The premise of the series doesn’t sound like anything mindblowingly original but I think that given the potential, factoring in the cast and crew, if the characters are likable enough and the writing is funny, this could turn out to be a pretty good show.
