In this incisive comedy, late 20-something Sammy Joyce, a hypochondriac, klutz, and jumper-to-conclusions, is in the White House as a health-care advisor to the newly elected administration. All her chips seem to be falling into place: she's living with her best friend and reveling in her romance with Charlie Lawton, an up-and-coming Washington Post reporter. However, soon after taking office, the administration finds itself deep in a red-hot scandal, and Charlie gets promoted to a job in New York.
