    to find a job anywhere else and facing eviction, she is forced to work for her rich father Jack's
    (Segal) fashion magazine Blush. *The problem is that Jack has not exactly been a devoted and
    nurturing parent, plus he is now married to one of her former classmates. *Personality conflicts
    quickly ensue with the magazine's colorful staff *- libido-driven ex-model Nina van Horn
    (Malick), philandering photographer Elliot (Enrico Colantoni), and obnoxious, power-hungry
    secretary Dennis Finch (Spade).

    "Wings") and executive produced by TV veterans Bernie Brillstein and Brad Grey
    ("NewsRadio"), Just Shoot Me ran for seven top-rated seasons on NBC. *The series was
