Laurie Barker is 29, single, and dreams of being a published author. So she doesn't mind that she currently dedicates her time to being an unpaid slave to a literary agent while spending her nights working in a call centre to pay the bills, much. But when her younger sister announces she's getting married in seven weeks, Laurie has a problem: she has seven weeks to perfect her life. Step one of this is to find a boyfriend so she doesn't have to admit to her family that not only isn't she dating famous author Timothy Farren, she hasn't even met him. The only solution appears to be online dating. And after all, how much worse could her life get?
Over 12 episodes follow Laurie as she takes charge of her life, only to find it slipping more out of control.
