DESCRIPTION: (from ABC's press release) Jayne Doherty was a top performer at a high-powered, male-dominated Wall Street investment bank where 100-hour work weeks are the status quo and the mighty dollar is everything. But then she accidentally got pregnant and decided to raise the baby herself. Returning to the office in record time as her old, Type-A workaholic self, Jayne expects to effortlessly juggle work and home life. However, she is quickly forced to come to terms with her complete naivete about the realities of being a single, working mom. On her first day back at the office, Jayne has to handle a multi-billion dollar new business pitch with Roger, an old flame from the London office, and Paul, the boss's incompetent nephew, who is gunning for her job. Not only that, she catches her annoyingly thin French nanny drinking and fires her on the spot. Jayne believes that if she can just get through the next two days, they'll win the deal, Roger will return to England, and she'll get better help at home. But she's in for a rude awakening when things don't go as planned. Jayne learns she's in for even more surprises. If you thought your life was busy, you ain't seen nothing until you "See Jayne Run."
