Alice has her life turned upside-down when she ‘stupidly’ falls for the love of her life Ben - an adorable, quick-witted divorced father with three kids. But when she ignores her fears of commitment and her ability to mother, Imaginary Mary, her childhood invention, comes back to life to express Alice’s deepest fears and add more chaos to the situation.
ABC has cancelled Imaginary Mary after just one season. The freshman comedy, which mixes live action and CGI animation, premiered as a mid-season entry without much buzz, ultimately failing to attract a substantial audience in its Tuesday night time slot.
The series starred Jenna Elfman as Alice, a public relations executive with a long-standing fear of commitment who has her world turned upside down when her childhood creation comes back to life. This turn of events makes Alice's life even more chaotic, as her imaginary friend from decades ago is now back to express all her fears while trying to help her transition from the single life to being ready to find love.
