Travelling to England, she reconnects with her old friends and ends up in the midst of their personal crises. Relationships are forged and broken, political scandals exposed, London social life lampooned, love affairs ignited and doused, and of course, there are four weddings… and a funeral.

The exterior of Ainsley's three-story terraced house in Notting Hill was filmed on location, but the interior was built on a soundstage. 

The show was shot elsewhere in London including the National Gallery, Albert Bridge, Hatfield House, Kew Gardens, Ronnie Scott’s jazz club, and Portobello Road

London also doubled for New York City, New Jersey, the Caribbean, and a ski chalet in Switzerland.
