Can two estranged sisters, polar opposites, live together when one agrees to carry the other's baby? On FOX's "The Return of Jezebel James," Sarah Thomkins (Parker Posey, "For Your Consideration," "Best in Show") is a bright, optimistic, determined woman who seems to have it all: a great job as a children's book editor, an eager-to-please assistant, Buddy (Michael Arden), who helps keep her life together, and a no-strings-attached personal relationship with successful businessman Marcus Sonti (Scott Cohen, "Kissing Jessica Stein").

Nevertheless, as her father, Ronald (Ron McLarty, "Law & Order"), is constantly pointing out, something is missing from Sarah's life on "The Return of Jezebel James." Her hard work may garner accolades, but when she goes home at night, she is very much alone. All too aware that she isn't getting any younger, Sarah decides to have a baby on her own and gets the shock of her life on "The Return of Jezebel James" when the doctor tells her she can't get pregnant.

Having no concept of the term "can't," Sarah wills herself to execute a plan on "The Return of Jezebel James." With nowhere else to turn, Sarah sets up a meeting with her quirky younger sister, Coco (Lauren Ambrose, "Six Feet Under"), and proposes a plan for Coco to carry her baby. They haven't seen each other in a while, and Coco refuses to go along with such a huge favor. But something happens when Sarah mentions that she's turned Coco's imaginary childhood friend, Jezebel James, into a children's book. Even though she doesn't say so out loud, Coco is clearly touched, and, realizing that her current living situation sharing a couch with her friend's sick dog isn't working out on "The Return of Jezebel James," Coco decides that this just might be worth a try.

"The Return of Jezebel James" stars Parker Posey as Sarah, Lauren Ambrose as Coco, Scott Cohen as Marcus, Michael Arden as Buddy, and Ron McLarty as Ronald.

"The Return of Jezebel James" is produced by Regency Television. Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino are executive producers. Amy Sherman-Palladino directed the pilot for "The Return of Jezebel James."
