Almost Perfect TV Show

Almost Perfect Cast

Series Description

Almost Perfect was a 30 minute romantic comedy series on CBS about a couple whose careers were so demanding that it was difficult to give their relationship the attention it deserved. Kim Cooper was a TV writer who had recently been promoted to Executive Producer. Her newfound love interest, Mike Ryan was a hotshot district attorney who also "lived for" his job. To make matters worse, Kim had a rather "high-strung" personality while Mike was pretty laid back (although extremely busy at work).

Almost Perfect Trivia


The TV show that Kim Cooper worked on was a fictional police series titled, "Blue Justice". That series was a spoof of the real-life series, "NYPD Blue".

There were too main reasons that made Kim's job difficult for her to deal with. First, she had to deal with several egotistical Cast on her show. Second, she also had to work with Gary, Rob, and Neal; the writers who worked for her. Of course nearly all of those actors and all of the writers were men and Kim didn't do so well when dealing with men. Besides having to balance a demanding job with a relationship, Kim also had to balance the demands of being a strong, savvy, confident, female leader of those men with her desire to remain feminine.

In 1996, Almost Perfect's casting directors, "Jeff Greenberg" and "Sheila Guthrie", were nominated for an "Artios Award" from the "Casting Society of America" but "3rd Rock from the Sun" won the Award.

In an unusual dramatic change in the storyline of Almost Perfect, Kim Cooper and Mike Ryan's relationship came to an end at the beginning of the second season. Typically, "boy/girl" characters on TV series either stay together or they have a "teasing" type of relationship that never gets serious. Most series that have changed either of those dynamics have quickly been canceled, the most notable being, "Moonlighting" that went from a very popular series to cancellation almost overnight when the main characters, "David Addison" and "Maddie Hayes", got married. While there were other reasons, Almost Perfect was also canceled shortly after the relationship change took place.

Just in case you never watched Almost Perfect, you might know Nancy Travis from her roles as "Bernice" on the TV series "Duckman", as "Chris Connor" on "Becker", or as "Susan Pearson" on "The Bill Engvall Show".

Kevin Kilner also starred as "William Boone" on another series titled, "Earth: Final Conflict".
