Kelly Leone, producer at Wake Up Milwaukee, a local morning television talk show, has focused this year on changing what were the declining fortunes of the show - her efforts having paid off - at the expense of spending time with friends. This time has also been at the expense of her longer term goal of a news producer life in a bigger market, like Chicago. As such, on New Year's Eve, she, under pressure from her best friends AJ, Lisa and Jackson, makes the new years resolution to say yes to partake in any social event asked of her, no matter the event, this resolution well outside her comfort zone in generally only doing things in which she is comfortable in a high probability of success. The end date of this resolution is her thirtieth birthday in one month's time. Much to her chagrin, her production team, looking for an extended new years story for the show, decides to follow her on her one month progression on this resolution. This resolution coincides with Kelly meeting Tom ... Written by Huggo

A New Year's Favorite!
17 January 2021 | by ginasharpSee all my reviews

I would've given this a 10 but dropped it back a point just because it seemed a little awkward for me in the very beginning. When she goes to buy the cookies for her office, the counter guy scene was awkward and wierd. But once I got past that part, it really started to get good! Loved the couple, especially the main male character. I absolutely loved that when the couple met, they fell for each other and liked each other! Refreshing to see a couple get along right from the start instead of arguing for awhile!

The Game Cafe was so cool and like one of the best dates ever!
