• A to Z is a (Bitter) Sweet Romantic Comedy

     Sincere and warm-hearted, this series tells the story of a romance…from A to Z.a-to-z

    Andrew Lofland is a romantic at heart and a believer in destiny – so much so, he works at an online dating service, where he can help others find “the one.” Zelda Vasco is a hard-headed lawyer serious about her career, and “destiny” is about the last thing she believes in. When Andrew meets Zelda, he recalls seeing her at a party several years earlier, and believes fate has reunited them and that they’re destined to be together. Zelda is less sure — but she’s willing to give love a chance. 

    A to Z is a romantic comedy with little objectionable content, save for an occasional leering remark by Andrew’s sex-crazed buddy Stu. This chronicle of totally different people from totally different worlds, and how they make their relationship work — or don’t — promises to be sincere, if bittersweet at the end, as the show’s narration hints: “Andrew and Zelda will date for 8 months, 3 weeks, 5 days, and 1 hour. This program is the story of their relationship – A to Z.”

    A to Z premieres Thursday, October 2, at 9:30 p.m. ET on NBC.

        Time to call it a day on the edgy fratboy jokes. They’ve been done–over and over and over and over…..
