Ned and Stacey is an American sitcom created by Michael J. Weithorn, that aired on the Fox Broadcasting Company network from 1995 to 1997, starring Thomas Haden Church and Debra Messing as the titular couple.
Ned Dorsey (Church) and Stacey Colbert (Messing) are brought together in a marriage of convenience -- Ned needs to be married to get a promotion, while Stacey desperately needs to move out of her parents' house, and Ned has a very good apartment.
Ned and Stacey's constant bickering slowly evolves into something resembling a romance. However, the show was cancelled before this plot could be developed further.
