From one of the headwriters and executive producers of "Sex and the City" and the director of the Academy Award-winning film, "Walk the Line," comes a fun and sexy ensemble drama about finding love in the most unexpected places: ABC's "Men in Trees."

"Finding a good man in today's world isn't as difficult as some women think. You just have to watch out for the signs. You wouldn't drive with a blindfold on, but for some reason, women continue to date with one…" So native New Yorker Marin advises a crowd of her devoted fans on "Men in Trees." Marin thinks she has found her good man, fiancé Graham, but discovers, bound for a speaking engagement in Elmo, Alaska, that he's been cheating on her. Plans for the wedding come to a screeching halt. Concluding that she really doesn't know anything about men, Marin resolves to temporarily stay in Elmo, where the ratio of men to women is ten to one, and get started on her new book – about men.

On "Men in Trees," Marin's subjects are quite a lively bunch. Adorably affable Patrick, an avid fan of Marin's books, runs the town's only inn and radio station. Man's man Buzz owns his own airline (one prop plane) that flies in and out of Elmo. Sophisticated Ben runs the town's only bar and has an unusual past. Last but definitely not least, strong and silent Jack protects the environment and comes to protect Marin from a possibly rabid raccoon and, occasionally, herself.



On "Men in Trees," there are women in Elmo too. Both Theresa, Ben's estranged wife and a former rock musician, and Sara, the town's "working girl," introduce Marin to a whole new way of thinking about men. Mai, Buzz's mail-order bride who's always wheeling and dealing, and Patrick's mother, Celia, Elmo's ever watchful police chief, keep Marin on her toes. And of course there's Annie, Marin's biggest fan, who moves to Elmo after hearing about Marin's break-up to reassure her—mostly by quoting the relationship advice she has learned from Marin's books. Back in NYC, Marin's tough-girl editor, Jane, lends her long-distance support, and even braves the ice and bad cell phone reception for the occasional visit.

On "Men in Trees," Marin learns that she has been living with her eyes closed for too long. Now that they're finally open, she sees the amazingly beautiful world around her, and for the first time she'll have the chance to stop and breathe. Now if she could just get the raccoon out of her hotel room, this place might be perfect.

"Men in Trees" stars Anne Heche as Marin Frist, Abraham Benrubi as Ben Thomasson, Emily Bergl as Annie O'Donnell, Seana Kofoed as Jane, Suleka Mathew as Sara, Derek Richardson as Patrick Bachelor, Cynthia Stevenson as Celia Bachelor, Sarah Strange as Theresa, Lauren Tom as Mai Washington, James Tupper as Jack Slattery and John Amos as Buzz Washington.
