Miss Match

Miss Match Information

Miss Match is a 2003 American television series created by Jeff Rake and Darren Star and produced by Twentieth Century Fox, Darren Star Productions and Imagine Entertainment. It aired in the U.S. on NBC, Australia on Network Seven, Arena and FOX8, and in the UK on Living, Channel 4 and is currently on E4. The series filmed at least 18 episodes but only 8 aired in the US. The entire series aired in both the UK & Canada.

Starring Alicia Silverstone and Ryan O'Neal, the show garnered poor ratings, which could have been due to its inability to compete in the Friday 8pm ET timeslot (aka "Friday night death slot"). It was based on the real-life story of Samantha Daniels.


A Los Angeles matrimonial attorney (Alicia Silverstone) doubles as a high-end matchmaker, Kate Fox, even though her own love life is far from perfect.


Kate Fox (Alicia Silverstone) - Kate Fox is a divorce lawyer by day who ends up becoming a match maker. Her own romantic life is complicated to say the least. Throughout the series she is involved with Michael and later his best friend, Adam. Kate often finds herself getting involved in the relationships she sets up for people. Various characters mention to her that she is addicted to love and lives through the lives of others.

Jerry Fox (Ryan O'Neal) - Kate's father who owned the law firm she works for. He was not a perfect father to Kate but they bonded over law. He is shown to still have feelings for Kate's mother but is not hung up on her. Later in the series he is linked with Serena.

Nick Paine (James Roday)- Kate's co-worker who is a womanizer. He and Kate tolerate each other, at best. He later dates Victoria.

Claire (Jodi Long) - Fox & Associates secretary.

Victoria Carlson (Lake Bell) - Kate's best friend who is a bartender. She often overlooks the dates Kate sets people up with. She tends to only have flings with men, like the one she starts with Nick. The only man we see her like as more than a hookup is Adam.

Michael Mendelson (David Conrad) - Kate's on and off again boyfriend after she sets him up on several dates. His ex girlfriend is Lauren who left him for his best friend Adam.

Adam Logan (Nathan Fillion) - Adam comes to town after Lauren hires Kate as her divorce lawyer. He and Michael end up repairing their friendship but he soon becomes involved with Kate and Victoria.

Lauren Logan (Dina Meyer) - Michael's ex girlfriend and Adam's ex-wife. After finding out that Michael & Kate are involved she makes Kate break it off. After finding out Adam & Kate are involved she sues Kate's law firm for malpractice.

Serena Lockner (Charisma Carpenter) - Serena is an old classmates of Kate who comes back into her life. Kate helps her adopt a baby and give it back to the mother when she realizes she made a mistake. She later returns and starts a romance with Kate's father.

NBC had a cross promotion where Galen Gering & McKenzie Westmore, who starred on NBC's soap opera Passions, appeared in an episode of the series.
