A struggling, middle-aged actress attempts to make a career in Hollywood, all while surrounded by her hard-drinking best friend Maryann, her two ex-husbands, Ira and Jeff, and her two daughters, headstrong Zoey and agreeable Rachel.
This show would regularly steal storylines directly from previously aired episodes from the Ellen (1994) sitcom. Oftentimes, Cybill even copied everything almost scene-by-scene, such as the episode where Ellen comes home with her friend to a robbery in progress in her apartment, (so does Cybill with Maryanne in tow), takes a self-defense class, buys a male mannequin as crime prevention to sit on her couch etc. This would go on for almost the entire run of the series.
Maryann Thorpe: Bite me.
