Thirtysomething depicts the lives of a group of upwardly mobile friends who are all in their thirties living in Philadelphia. Although seen as an ensemble drama, the series tended to revolve around Michael and Hope Steadman, who provided the focal point for the group. Michael's cousin was photographer Melissa and his business partner was Elliot, who had a troubled marriage with his wife Nancy.
