Going Places is a sitcom that aired on ABC.

The show's original premise was that four young writers, conservative Chicago ad man Charlie Davis, his rambunctious, insecure brother Jack, whose background was in improvisational comedy, sexy Denver native Alexandra "Alex" Burton, a writer, and New Yorker Kate Griffin, were the writing staff of Here's Looking at You, a Candid Camera-type program featuring real people caught unawares. When Charlie and Jack first arrived in Los Angeles, they were pleased to find that their writing partner was to be Alex, whose kittenish sex appeal and laid-back sensibility drew both of them in. Almost at the last minute, Kate entered the picture, whose wisecracking sarcasm caused friction with the other three. They thought putting up with Kate was only going to have to be relegated to the studio, but when Charlie, Jack and Alex learned they would be renting a beach house together, Kate was there to greet them with a hearty, "The big bedroom's mine!".
