Star World's new show focusses on the meaning of life

MUMBAI: Star World will air a new show According to Bex every Saturday at 10 pm from 5 November 2005.

The show's main protagonist is Bex Atwell. A typical single woman in her late twenties with a typical office secretary job. Like all other typical office ladies, she aspires to something. well, not so typical - like the perfect job and the perfect man. But in her not-so-ideal life, it is all, very typically, out

Jessica Stevenson plays Bex, a girl who lives in an "almost" world - she's almost in a relationship, almost in a good job. Her so-so life is dominated by the multiple "almostmen" around her - her smarmy boss, Charles, who fails to grasp the concept of monogamy and her on/off boyfriend Ryan (Oliver Chris) who treats ambition and a steady job as twin repulsive bugbears, much to Bex's chagrin. Then there's her womanising father, Jack (Clive Russell), who has passed through middle-age and emerged the other side as a juvenile teenager.

Bex, despite being smart and sassy, is still clueless as to the machinations of the male of the species. However, she still has to figure out what men are all about and why women even give a toss. But it seems the more she learns about men and relationships, the more infuriating they become. She does, however, get some help from her cynical pal Chris (Raquel Cassidy) and her loopy work colleague Jan (Zita Sattar).

The channel says that According To Bex comes with a good pedigree. Creator Fred Barron has written for shows like The Larry Sanders Show and Caroline In The City. The show has been shot in an almost stream of consciousness style with the storyline constantly interrupted by Bex's flights of fantasies, camera monologues and random soundbites from supposed 'people-in-the-street' offering unsolicited opinions on how Miss Almost should handle her problems
