Hot-tempered journalist, Maya Gallo, got herself fired from another job. Considering that she is unable to find another one she is forced to go work for Blush, her father's fashion magazine. Personality conflicts quickly ensue with high-strung ex-model Nina van Horn, philandering photographer Elliot, and wise-guy secretary Dennis Finch.
At one time in the early 1970s, it seemed like George Segal would have a career like that enjoyed by ...
The character of Jack Gallo, portrayed by George Segal, is the owner and publisher of Blush. During his daughter Maya's childhood, Jack was an absent workaholic. The relationship between the two of them develops throughout the series reaching its pinnacle when he hands the magazine over to Maya in the series finale after retiring. When extolling the virtues of an assistant to Maya, he notes that an assistant (in his case Finch) can even become one's "best friend," although the sentiment was slightly dulled by his use of the pronoun "it" to refer to the hypothetical assistant (and therefore to Finch).
Jack is four times divorced, although he was married to Maya's high school classmate Allie for the first half of the series. They have a daughter (Maya's half-sister) named Hannah who was born in the first episode, "Look Who's Coming to Blush". Jack has a running contest with Donald Trump as to who is, among other topics, the smartest, the richest, and the best gift giver. In "The Book of Jack", Finch refers to Jack as "Jackson Gilbert Galllo".
