Before spending her days on speeding buses and floating in space, Sandra Bullock followed in Melanie Griffith's footsteps as an aspiring Staten Island girl suddenly stomping the Manhattan sidewalks as a corporate secretary. The short-lived 1990 NBC sitcom was more of a loose interpretation of the 1988 hit film, with Bullock's Tess McGill simply trying to keep her head above water in a dog-eat-dog world. The series also featured a young George Newbern (Scandal) as Tess' charming but ambitious love interest and Anthony Tyler Quinn as the Staten Island heartbreaker vying for Tess' heart.
