HBO is this close
to ordering 10 episodes of a series Variety
describes as a guy's answer to Sex and the City
. The Mind of the Married Man
follows three Chicago newspaper reporters who are trying their best to remain faithful to their respective significant others. "It's about love, romance and monogamy in the workplace and home and in the family things people wrestle with every day," executive producer Stu Smiley
tells the trade paper.
