ONE WOMAN TAKES ON THE WORLD, ONE PROBLEM AT A TIME IN THE NEW SERIES "SOPHIE" PREMIERING MARCH 23RD ON ABC FAMILY

Burbank, CA (February 9, 2009) � When life gives you lemons, why not make it into a lemon-drop martini? In the new heartwarming and comedic ABC Family series "Sophie," one woman must face the most challenging year of her life. The 13 half-hour episodes premiere on Monday, March 23rd (9:30 � 10:00 PM ET/PT) and star Natalie Brown, Sebastian Spence, Jeff Geddis, Amy Lalonde, Mimi Kuzyk, Sara Botsford, Chantelle Chung and Catherine B�rub�.

Sophie Parker (Brown) is a beautiful, intelligent and successful young woman who had everything she ever wanted: a successful talent agency, a loving boyfriend and a baby on the way. But all at once everything falls apart. Her boyfriend of several years, Rick (Spence), leaves her right as the baby is about to be born and moves in with Sophie's best friend--and top client�Melissa (Lalonde). As if Rick's infidelity wasn't enough, he decides to add insult to injury by opening up a competing talent agency and starts poaching clients from Sophie's talent list. Of course, the one client he chooses to leave on Sophie's hand is her most challenging, Estelle (Botsford). An aging neurotic actress who hasn't given up that her 15 minutes are over yet, Estelle also happened to be Sophie's father's mistress, thus giving her the feeling that she is family � whether Sophie likes it or not.

Now having to deal with being a single mom, she must take on the job of rebuilding her business, as well as the life she once knew. To help her get through the tough times with a shoulder to cry on and a bottle of wine, Sophie leans on her best-friend Matt (Geddis) who gives her advice on everything from men to medical ailments. Unfortunately, she can't count on her manipulative mother Judith (Kuzyk) the same way. Judith is sure that Sophie and Rick are meant to be together and will pull every trick in the book to get her way. With all that is going on and all the directions Sophie is being pulled, she tries to maintain a positive attitude and stand strong in her designer heels as she tackles the most challenging year of her life.

"Sophie" was created by Richard Blaimert and is executive produced by Jocelyn Desch�nes.

"Sophie" is part of ABC Family's first-ever one-hour comedy block, which airs Mondays at 9:00 � 10:00 PM (ET/PT), following behind the new original comedy series "Roommates."
