  • Starring: David Alan Grier, Mark Derwin, Marianne Muellerleile
  • Summary: The series focuses on Bonnie Molloy (Bonnie Hunt), a woman who juggles the roles of wife, mother and host of the local morning talk show Morning Chicago. In the series, Hunt's improvisational skills shine during unscripted interviews with real life guests (non-actors) of "Morning Chicago."The cast includes a gifted David Alan Grier as David Bellows, the producer who struggles with the daily challenge of Bonnie; the makeup artist Holly (Holly Wortell); the cue card guy Marv (Chris Barnes); Anthony Russell portrays Tony Russo, Bonnie's sidekick piano player who comes straight to her show from his Vegas lounge act.At home, Gloria (Marianne Muellerleile) is a houseguest more than a housekeeper; Bonnie's husband, Mark (Mark Derwin), is a hard-working family practice doctor who does his best to survive life with Bonnie.Together they are raising two young children Charlie (Charlie Stewart) and infant Connor, as Bonnie creatively balances family commitment and career obligations using sincerity and humor.

    Life With Bonnie teems with so much clever give-and-take and nonstop action it feels as if each half hour is going to burst.

    What do you get by combining a fairly traditional family comedy with a less barbed version of The Larry Sanders Show? This interesting, if not wholly successful, hybrid.
