After she finds out that her fianci has cheated on her, she calls off the wedding and decides to stay in Elmo. Here, she questions her life, her love and who she is as she makes a new existence for herself up north, helping the abundant, available men there with their relationships.

About "Six Degrees"

They say that anyone on the planet can be connected to any other person through a chain of six people, which means that no one is a stranger... for long. In "Six Degrees," an hour-long drama from the producers of "Lost" and "Alias," six very different New Yorkers go about their lives without realizing the impact they're having on one another - yet. A mysterious web of coincidences will gradually draw these strangers closer, changing the course of their lives forever. This intriguing tale of intertwined destinies reminds us that romance, success, peace or forgiveness might be right around the corner, but they can also be lost in an instant. It's a story that underlines just how small the world really is, and how someone just five people away might be shaping our future right now.

"Six Degrees" stars Jay Hernandez ("Friday Night Lights") as Carlos Green, Bridget Moynahan ("Sex and the City") as Whitney Crane, Erika Christensen ("Flightplan") as Mae, Dorian Missick ("Lucky Number Slevin") as Damian, with Campbell Scott ("The Secret Lives of Dentists") as Steven Caseman and Hope Davis ("About Schmidt") as Laura.

"Six Degrees" is shot on location in New York City and is produced by Bad Robot, Nosebleed Productions and Touchstone Television. Executive producers are J.J. Abrams, Stuart Zicherman, Raven Metzner, Bryan Burk and Ken Biller. Peter Horton is consultant.
