Courting Alex Premieres on CBS on January 23rd

Jenna Elfman
Courting Alex stars Jenna Elfman ("Dharma & Greg") in a comedy about Alex (Elfman), an attractive, single attorney, who has everything life has to offer... except a life. Alex works alongside her father, Bill (Dabney Coleman, "The Guardian"), at his law firm, and while he is very proud of her, it pains him that his daughter is not married yet. If Bill had his way, Alex would settle down with her colleague, Stephen (Josh Stamberg, "A Lot Like Love"), a star lawyer at their firm who is obviously smitten with Alex. Julian (Hugh Bonneville, "Doctor Zhivago"), Alex's charming British neighbor, who makes his living as an artist, and Molly (Jillian Bach, "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place"), her loyal and brutally honest assistant, are the two people she chooses to lean on for advice. However, no amount of advice could prepare her for the unexpected feelings she's having for Scott, (Josh Randall, "Ed") an impressive, Renaissance man, who she recently met while trying to negotiate a deal involving his tavern. If Alex can put down her cell phone for long enough, her successes in love just might catch up to an already successful career.

Courting Alex stars Golden Globe Award winner and Emmy Award nominee Jenna Elfman as Alex Rose, Emmy Award and Golden Globe Award winner Dabney Coleman as Bill Rose, Hugh Bonneville as Julian, Josh Randall as Scott Larson, Jillian Bach as Molly, and Josh Stamberg as Stephen.

Courting Alex premieres on CBS on Monday, January 23rd at 9:30PM ET/PT.
