Janey is described as "a passionate, some might say driven person, possessed of what her boyfriend, Brad, calls a very big engine in a very small car."
The original series' creators Marshall Herskovitz and Ed Zwick have returned to write, and in Zwick's case, direct, the pilot. thirtysomething ran for four seasons, from 1987 to 1991, on ABC.
