Interspersed with humour, this evocative romantic comedy depicts the twists and turns in the life of Dr. Sullivan Travis 'Dr. T.', a wealthy Dallas gynecologist. Perhaps as a result of his extraordinarily good looks and charm, his clientele boasts of some of the wealthiest women in Texas.
However, his seemingly idyllic life begins to fray at the edges when his wife Kate, suffers a nervous breakdown and is committed to the state mental hospital. Dr. T's eldest daughter, Dee Dee, is planning to go through with her approaching wedding despite the secret that she's a lesbian and is romantically involved with Marilyn, the maid of honor.
Dr T's youngest daughter, Connie, is a conspiracy theorist freak who has her own agenda to everything, while Dr. T's loyal secretary, Carolyn, has romantic feelings for him, which are not mutual. Dr. T's sister-in-law, Peggy, meddles in every situation she stumbles into, while one woman, Bree, a golf instructor, is the only one who offers him any comfort and salvation. How will the future pan out for Dr T and the members of his family?
