Emily’s Reasons Why Not (2006)

The ABC sitcom starred Heather Graham, who played a single woman unlucky in love. A review from Boston.com called it an “obvious rip-off of Sex and the City that you’ll find yourself drawing comparisons for the whole half-hour. See Graham doing her best Sarah Jessica Parker as a fashion-conscious New York editor. Hear her plaintive voice-over narration; meet her loyal best girlfriends, including a gay man; and, of course, get a load of her Mr. Big, an emotionally unavailable writer played by Mark Valley.” ABC canceled the show after airing one episode, citing negative reception, despite spending reported millions on advertising. All six filmed episodes later aired in various other countries.
