Jane by Design

“This job . . . It’s the first thing I think about when I wake up and the last thing I think about before I go to sleep.” (Jane Quimby). Life has dealt Jane a difficult hand. Her mother ran out when she was little, and when she was fifteen her father died. Now she lives with her jobless, older brother, stitching her life together from hand-me-downs and good advice. One day, Jane finds an available internship at her favorite fashion designer’s company and enrolls in her school’s internship program to get the job. When she gets there , an identity mix-up lands Jane as the assistant to Gray Chandler Murray, a demanding, high society fashion designer. Now Jane must lead a double life: one as a high school student, the other as an adult in her fashion dream job.

Airing at 9PM on Tuesdays, “Jane by Design” is not your typical ABC family show: no one dies or is switched at birth. It’s simply a fun show about a geeky girl trying to make her way in the world. Since many girls can relate to Jane’s quirks and the way she sometimes feels invisible in a sea of wonderful, talented people, this show has something for everyone Only Jane’s best friend, Billy, her rock, can snap her back to reality. Although he drives her everywhere, Billy secretly maintains a secret relationship with Lulu, Jane’s enemy.

Inspired by The Devil Wears Prada, Jane by Design is its own creation altogether and a great show for all ages. It deserves five out of five stars.
