Jack and Mike was one of several attempts by ABC to produce another young, trendy, romantic drama to follow its established Tuesday night hit Moonlighting.

Jackie was a glamorous, dynamic newspaper columnist for the Chicago Mirror, who was always after a hot lead for an exposé, or sometimes just a warm human-interest story; Mike was a successful restaurateur, who operated two of the city's trendiest watering holes and was about to open a third. Though they were married and very much in love, their careers (her tips, his hors d’oeuvres) kept getting in the way.

Nora was the city editor and Anthony a reporter at the Mirror, and Carol the head waitress at Mike's new "Brennan's Grill." Rick was an occasionally seen attorney friend. The series was filmed on location in Chicago.
