What About Brian

VIBE – Saturdays from 9 January, 7.30pm

Like most married couples, Brian’s friends can’t wait for him to join their “club,”… though they’re not exactly sure why.

Brian (Barry Watson, Samantha Who?) is the guy everyone wants as a best friend. He’s the guy who’ll stand by you at your wedding, drive you to the hospital, cheer your kids on at their little league game… the guy who every wife dotes on and every husband wants to either grab a beer with or vicariously live through. But as all of his friends pair off and Brian emerges as the last bachelor standing, questions begin to arise in his head: Is there such a thing as Miss Right? Why does love have to be so complicated? And the most pressing question of all, could all of his problems stem from the fact that he is harbouring a crush on his best friend’s girl (Sarah Lancaster, Chuck)? Also starring Rosanna Arquette (Pulp Fiction).

What About Brian
Friday August 10, 8.30pm

The second season of the heartwarming ensemble drama, What About Brian, starts tonight at 8.30pm, leading on from the outstanding first season.

Six months have passed since Brian (Barry Watson), the consummate bachelor yet closet romantic, left town following a heartbreaking blow from Marjorie (Sarah Lancaster), the current love of his life – who also happens to be engaged to Brian’s best friend, Adam (Matthew Davis).
Since Brian’s been away, his close friends, Dave (Rick Gomez) and Deena (Amanda Detmer), have been suffering the fall-out of their disastrous experiment with an open marriage. What was supposed to combat the doldrums of parenting, work stress, and a lacklustre sex life has only driven the couple further apart. They’re now hoping marriage counselling will be able to heal their wounds and restore what was once a great love.

As for Adam and Marjorie – their hectic lifestyles seem to prevent them from organising the final details of their upcoming nuptials, though they seem to have plenty of time to analyse whether they actually do want to tie the knot. Brian’s sister, Nicole (Rosanna Arquette), is thrilled to finally be pregnant after a year of fertility treatments and is busy preparing for the new arrival. Unfortunately she’s doing most of the nesting alone, since her husband, Angelo (Raoul Bova), a hunky, Italian actor, is off in Rome starring in his first film. Thankfully Angelo is planning to return home in time for Adam and Marjorie’s wedding, which is not soon enough for Nicole.

Meanwhile, Jimmy (Jason Winston George), a fun-loving lawyer in Adam’s firm, and Jimmy’s feisty wife, Ivy (Amanda Foreman), who owns a bar in Koreatown, still appear to be the couple who represent what a good marriage can be.

Relationships and friendships become even more tangled when the second season of What About Brian starts on Friday August 10 at 8.30pm on TV2.

What About Brian?
Friday July 6, 8.30pm

From the producer of Lost comes the contemporary, heart-warming ensemble show – What About Brian? – about a group of supportive friends in various stages of romantic relationships and friendships – TV2, Friday July 6 at 8.30pm.

Brian (Barry Watson) is the guy everyone wants as a best friend. He’s the guy who’ll stand by you at your wedding, drive you to the hospital, cheer your kids on at their little league game… the guy who every wife dotes on and every husband wants to either grab a beer with or vicariously live through.
As all of his friends pair off and Brian emerges as the last bachelor standing, questions begin to arise in his head… Is there such a thing as Miss Right? Why does love have to be so complicated? What is his problem with commitment? The most pressing question is – and it’s one that only he can answer – could all of his problems stem from the fact that he is harbouring a crush on the picture-perfect Marjorie, his best friend’s girl?

Adam (Matthew Davis), Brian’s best friend since childhood, was going to break up with Marjorie (Sarah Lancaster), but found himself proposing to her instead. He’s a lawyer and Marjorie is a paediatric surgeon. Their busy lifestyles leave them little time to plan their upcoming wedding and, oddly enough, that seems to have given them more time to re-evaluate whether they’re indeed doing the right thing.

Brian’s 40-something sister, Nic (Rosanna Arquette), and her boy-toy husband, Angelo, are trying hard to start a family, but something’s not right. Nic’s high-stress work as a record executive and Angelo’s fledgling acting career have created some anxiety in the new marriage. Now they’re torn between conceiving a child the old-fashioned way, or using modern medicine to speed up the process.

Dave (Rick Gomez), who runs a video game business with Brian called Zap Monkey, is married to stay-at-home mom Deena (Amanda Detmer). They’ve been together for 13 years, have three little girls, and a lacklustre sex life. This prompts the frustrated and unconventional Deena to suggest to the more content Dave they consider having an open marriage.

What About Brian? screens Fridays on TV2 at 8.30pm.

Remember Tiffani Thiessen from Bevely Hills 90210? She’s just scored a regular role on the drama “What About Brian”, playing a boss called KC Gaming.
