SynopsisEdit

The show stars Farrah Forke as Carey, a woman hired to be the office manager of a highly successful software company named Cyberbyte, owned by Warren Mosbey (Peter Scolari).

Warren and the other employees (played by actors Stephen Tobolowsky, David Kaufman, Corey Feldman and Adam Biesk), were stereotypical nerds or "dweebs", highly intelligent yet socially inept, contrasting with the character of Carey.[2] There was a hint at a possible romance between Warren (the least socially inept nerd) and the beautiful, blonde, and more down-to-earth Carey.[citation needed]
