"THE BAD GIRL'S GUIDE,"
TUESDAY, MAY 24 AT 9:30 PM ON UPN
"The Guide To Procrastination" -- JJ (Jenny McCarthy) and Holly (Marcelle Larice) find creative ways to procrastinate when they must come up with an ad campaign for boring laundry detergent, on the premiere of THE BAD GIRL'S GUIDE, Tuesday, May. 24 (9:30-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on UPN. Ellen Gittelsohn directed the episode from a script by Robin Schiff.
Meanwhile, JJ helps her friend and roommate Sarah (Christina Moore) through a crisis with an old boyfriend.
In UPN's new comedy THE BAD GIRL'S GUIDE, JJ is living life to the fullest and, never one to turn down fun with her girlfriends, she ultimately believes she will settle down when she finds Mr. Right, as long as he doesn't cramp her bad girl style. JJ's co-worker Holly, a fun-loving, divorcee who vows to never marry again, doesn't believe in moderation and occasionally pushes her bad girlness to the limit. Rounding out the trio is Sarah, JJ's smart and attractive roommate who is ready for marriage and life as a responsible adult, but finds herself lured into the bad girl antics of best friends JJ and Holly. As two successful advertising executives, JJ and Holly struggle to maintain their creative and spontaneous nature while working in a structured corporate environment and staying one step ahead of their anti-bad girl supervisor Irene. However, JJ and Holly find solace in Patric, the receptionist, who despite being engaged, relishes in being "just one of the girls" by helping JJ and Holly keep it together at work.
