Samantha Who? (Tv Series) 2007

Samantha Who? is an Emmy Award-winning American television sitcom which premiered on October 15, 2007 on ABC. The series was created by Cecelia Ahern and Don Todd, who also serve as producers.

The show centers around Samantha Newly (Christina Applegate), a 30-year-old vice president of a real estate firm who develops retrograde amnesia after a hit and run accident. Upon waking, she realizes to her dismay that she had been selfish and unlikeable before her accident, and therefore sets out to make amends and become a better person. Samantha Who? was, for its first seven episodes, the highest-rated freshman sitcom of the 2007-2008 TV season. The series, which is filmed in the single-camera format, went on hiatus during the 2008-2009 television season and returned in a new timeslot on Thursday March 26, 2009, following In the Motherhood. The season finale will be on Thursday, April 23.

Plot: Samantha Newly is a vice-president at a Chicago realty firm. When she gets hit by a car, she falls into a coma. For eight days she is asleep, but upon waking, she finds she has retrograde amnesia; she has retained all general knowledge but hasn’t a clue as to who she is or what she’s done with her life. Soon, Sam finds out she’s been very, very cruel to those around her. Taking her amnesia as a sign that it’s time for change, Sam sets about making up for what the old, evil Sam did, and tries to change her life and herself for the better.
