The setting for this short-lived series about secretaries and their bosses, was the executive offices of Package, Inc., a package design company in Chicago.
Rita, the veteran, a divorcee who had been with the firm for 19 years, was the backbone of the company - making sure that everything was done on time, mediating arguments and trying to be a good listener to job-related and personal problems. Her inept boss, Frank, the senior manager, was so dependent on her that he felt threatened by anything that might cause change.
Other cast members included: Natalie, the firm's only female executive, more than capable of dealing with the guys on their own terms; Beth, Natalie's secretary - and a mother of four - barely able to keep up with the demands of work and family; Steve, no sense of humor top salesman, who was not above stretching the truth to close a deal; Deborah, Steve's secretary, a naive M.B.A. student who took everything literally; Bobby, the talented but temperamental graphic artist, who had brought the firm a lot of business but often had to be kept out of earshot of clients and Mae, Bobby's free-spirited secretary, a 3-time loser at marriage whose last job had been with Club Med.
