Ed

Ed is back! UPtv has picked-up the rights to the NBC comedy/drama starring Tom Cavanagh. The series aired for four seasons from 2000-2004 and also starred Julie Bowen, now of Modern Family. The series begins (Monday, Jan. 11) today airing weekdays at 4pm. New York attorney Ed Stevens (Tom Cavanagh) leaves the big city and returns to his small hometown in Ohio. There, he realizes that he's been missed by a lot of friends that he also missed. He also runs into Carol, the girl he'd adored in high school. Swept up in roiling emotions, Ed buys the local bowling alley on a whim and is determined to win Carol's heart. His horizons broaden as he settles once more in Stuckeyville, and the series itself settles into a charming, funny, often serious slice-of-life series focused not solely on Ed, but on the lovable ensemble cast of people who live and work with him in Stuckeyville.
