First Time Out | 1995
Surviving a dead-end relationship, graduating Yale and moving in with her two best friends, Jackie attempts to make a living by juggling two jobs, neither of which requires her degree in philosophy. She works the reception desk at a trendy Los Angeles salon and moonlights dubbing classic television shows in Spanish. Helping her sort through the madness are her roommates. Dominique is a no-nonsense woman who hopes to break through the glass ceiling of the music industry. Rounding out the uneven trio is Susan, a product of too many 12-Step programs and a believer in hug therapy, who uses this in her job as a psychotherapist. Jackie's other friends include her childhood buddy Nathan; Rosa, a hairdresser; and Madeline, a neighbor.
