ROB LOWE AND ANNA FRIEL STAR IN "PERFECT STRANGERS," A ROMANTIC NEW TELEVISION MOVIE WHICH HAS COMPLETED PRODUCTION IN TORONTO AND LONDON FOR BROADCAST ON THE CBS TELEVISION NETWORK

Khandi Alexander ("CSI: Miami") Also Stars

PERFECT STRANGERS stars Rob Lowe ("dr. vegas," "The West Wing") and Anna Friel ("Timeline") in a new television movie which has completed production in Toronto and London for broadcast on the CBS Television Network. The romantic comedy is about a high-powered New York advertising executive and a fashionable junior ad rep in London who switch lives for a month and learn that they have more in common than they imagined. Khandi Alexander ("CSI: Miami") also stars.

Lloyd Rockwell (Lowe) is a star at his agency and newly engaged to a beautiful society girl when he goes to work in the firm's London office for a few weeks to help land the London Tourism account. Susie Wilding (Friel) is charming but terminally-single and in need of some excitement when her boss offers her the opportunity to go work for a while in the company's New York office. A condition of the exchange is that Lloyd and Susie swap apartments as well. Lloyd lives in a white, minimalist, ultra-modern Manhattan apartment that couldn't be more different than Susie's kitschy, colorful old English cottage cramped with furniture and cluttered with pets. Things get off to a terrible start when Susie takes some questionable career advice from Lloyd that almost causes her to lose one of the company's principal accounts, and Lloyd is accused of giving away proprietary client information to the competition.

On the verge of losing his career and his fianc´┐Że, Lloyd realizes that Susie may be the only one who can save his job, if only he can convince her, from across the Atlantic that he's not the arrogant, underhanded jerk she's come to believe he is.

Alexander plays Christie Kaplan, a vice president based at the agency's New York office who takes on a mentoring role to Susie.

PERFECT STRANGERS is a Working Title production. Simon Wright and Analisa Barreto from Working Title TV are the executive producers; Robin Sheppard ("Between The Sheets") directed the movie from a script by Simon Booker ("The Blind Date") based on the book by the same name by Robyn Sisman.
