Cracking Up is an American television sitcom created by School of Rock writer Mike White, who also served as the series' head writer. It aired on the Fox Network on Monday nights from March to May 2004. The title of the program and the name of the psychiatrist, Dr. Bollas, are comic allusions to Christopher Bollas, a psychoanalyst, and to his book Cracking UP.
The sly, hip, often imitated romantic dramedy about an ex-model and a PI who team up to run the Blue Moon Detective Agency. As the lead characters tried to decide if they loved or hated each other, the series established itself as a prime example of the 'will they or won't they' subgenre so popular in 1980s TV.
