Coupling was an NBC network sitcom & American remake of the British television sitcom of the same title created by Steven Moffat.
The show premiered on September 25, 2003 and starred Rena Sofer, Jay Harrington, Lindsay Price, Sonya Walger, Colin Ferguson and Christopher Moynihan.
NBC commissioned thirteen episodes, but due to low ratings & poor critical reception, "Coupling" was cancelled on October 31, 2003 after only four episodes. The final three planned episodes were not filmed & the remaining six episodes remain unaired.
The show was about six 30-somethings who live in Chicago, Illinois and are either involved, formerly involved or looking to become intimately involved with one another.
Susan is a beautiful and sexy go-getter with an uninhibited attitude who used to date Patrick, the cocky, good-looking guy of the group.
Sally is Susan's attractive and unspeakably vain best friend and beauty therapist who is desperate for a man and now dates Patrick.
Steve wants to date Susan, but he can't seem to shake off his clingy ex-girlfriend, Jane, who is completely in love with Steve and refuses to be dumped by him.
Jeff is Steve's "porn buddy," who (unknown to his friends) is terrified of sex or the prospect of it. He works in the same office as Susan and had a forgettable fling with her.
