Feature film star Rebecca Romijn (X-Men and the upcoming feature film Man About Town) stars as Pepper Dennis, a beautiful and ambitious reporter whose career goal is anchoring Chicago's top-rated evening news broadcast. Pepper Dennis is a one-hour comedy about a modern woman who refuses to give up on the dream of having it all.

Pepper is a rising star in the newsroom of Chicago station WEIE. Intent on being the best reporter she can be, she chases down the facts of every story, often throwing caution and common sense to the wind. Literally throwing herself into her work, Pepper has been known to land in puddles, dumpsters and - occasionally - bed.

In fact, the most recent disaster in Pepper's career is that she shared one night of passion with a hot new guy named Charlie Babcock (Josh Hopkins, The Perfect Storm, Ally McBeal). The next morning, Charlie showed up in the newsroom, grabbed her dream job and is now practically her boss. He leads a seemingly charmed life, repeatedly using his many talents to save the day and impress everyone he meets. Office romances can be so complicated, especially when Pepper can't help but notice that the scheming weather reporter, Blanca (Alexandra Barreto, American Family), obviously has her eye on Charlie.

Further complicating Pepper's daily life is the fact that her sheltered, needy and recently separated sister Kathy (Brooke Burns, North Shore, Baywatch) has moved in with her. Kathy had planned a certain kind of life for herself - she was a good, supportive wife and planned to be a great mother, but her husband's cheating changed everything. Now, Kathy is literally starting over.

Luckily for Pepper, a few of her co-workers are also her close friends, especially the station's makeup artist, Kimmy Kim (Lindsay Price, Beverly Hills, 90210). Kimmy is Pepper's confidante, a no-nonsense Korean-American who listens to Pepper's woes and gives great advice.

Pepper's other workplace pal is her cameraman Chick (Rider Strong, Boy Meets World), who has a secret crush on Pepper. Chick is a pure soul, kind and protective of Pepper while he loves her from afar.

Pepper Dennis is from 20th Century Fox Television and writers/executive producers Gretchen J. Berg & Aaron Harberts (Wonderfalls, Roswell, Beverly Hills, 90210), Jason Katims (Boston Public, Roswell) and director/executive producer Shawn Levy (The Pink Panther, Cheaper by the Dozen, Just Married).
