ordered to pilot
(from ABC's press release) Angela is bright, competent and extremely dedicated to her job. Only one thing is holding her back from the success she deeply desires and richly deserves. She's a nice girl; too nice a sunshiny, kindhearted, blueberry-scone-baking girl, who is always willing to drop whatever she's doing to help others. Angela works at Masterlord Realty, a high-end corporate real estate firm that makes billions every year. And, in this dog-eat-dog environment where even pregnant women are tough, nice guys don't finish last... nice girls do. So when Angela's dream of becoming a Vice President by the time she's 30 is thwarted by her charismatic co-worker, ex-frat boy Deef, Angela finally realizes she needs to break her "nice girl" habits. And help arrives in the form of her new secretary, the ironically-named Joy. Joy has seen it all, knows all the tricks, and has little patience for Angela's naivete. She is determined to show Angela how to rise into the senior ranks of the company. Together, they join forces: Joy teaches Angela to stand up for herself and Angela teaches Joy to appreciate blueberry scones. And we realize that together, they will make an unstoppable team. Based on the best-selling book Nice Girls Don't Get The Corner Office: 101 Unconscious Mistakes Women Make That Sabatoge Their Careers and starring Jayma Mays ("Heroes," "Ugly Betty"), writer/producers Jeff Ventimilia and Josh Sternin ("That '70s Show," "Kitchen Confidential") attempt to answer the question: Can you succeed and be a "nice girl" at the same time?
