SIX MONTHS HAVE PASSED AND CONSUMMATE BACHELOR BRIAN
COMES BACK HOME TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT WITH HIS FAMILY AND FRIENDS,
ON THE SEASON PREMIERE OF ABC�S �WHAT ABOUT BRIAN�
It�s taken a lot of soul-searching and a near-death experience, but Brian is finally free of his feelings for Marjorie and returns home, hoping to make things right with Adam and the rest of the group before Adam and Marjorie�s wedding, on the season premiere of �What About Brian,� MONDAY, OCTOBER 9 (10:00-11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.
In the season premiere, �What About Second Chances,� six months have passed since Brian, the consummate bachelor yet closet romantic, left town following a heartbreaking blow out with Marjorie, the current love of his life -- who also happens to be engaged to Brian�s best friend, Adam. Since Brian�s been away, his close friends, Dave and Deena, have been suffering the fallout of their disastrous experiment with an open marriage; What was supposed to combat the doldrums of parenting, work stress and a lackluster sex life has only driven the couple further apart. They�re now hoping marriage counseling will be able to heal their wounds and restore what was once a great love.
Meanwhile Brian�s sister, Nicole, 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, 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.
Additions this season are Jimmy (Jason George), a fun-loving lawyer in Adam�s firm who rivals Brian as Adam�s best friend; and Jimmy�s feisty wife, Ivy, (Amanda Foreman), who owns a bar in Koreatown.
