Working It Out is the story of two single parents, Sarah Marshall (Jane Curtin) and David Stuart (Stephen Collins), who had never seriously contemplated remarriage until they met each other. Given their past histories, both had considerable trepidation, and this was reinforced by their friends' attitudes.[1]

Working It Out did not fare well in the Nielsen ratings and was cancelled in December 1990.
