Appetite for Love

Synopsis: Mina has everything going for her -- a boyfriend who has meticulously planned out their lives and a great job with International Corporate Brands. But her world is turned upside down when work sends her to her hometown in Tennessee where she must convince an old, stubborn restaurant owner to sell his property. There is just one problem - the restaurant is now owned by her ex-boyfriend, Clay, who claims he will never sell. He resists her negotiations every step of the way, and all the while sparks fly.

Yup, absolutely. Corporate

thinks everything looks good.

The restaurant's only been

open a month...

...and the new double-decker pizza

is a hit.

Not to worry,

I'll talk to marketing...

...about the new

Midas Pizza signage. Yeah.

Great. How's the new

pretzel crust tracking?

Thank you!

Hey, Zoe.

Chai tea latte.

Thanks, I'll get you

back after work.

Everyone just went into

the update meeting.

Do me a favor,

put this on my desk?

Sure. Loving the new shoes.

Franc Hills?

Thank you, and yes,

and gotta go.

Glad to see that everyone

could make it this morning.

All right, let's start.

Q4 was excellent for

International Corporate Brands.

We are projecting one of our most

profitable years...

All right, let's focus,

people, please.

Let's start with Jungle Juicery.

Now, the chain grew to 50 stores...

...last year, which in anyone's

book is quite the accomplishment.

I got reservations

for us at Erimea tonight at 7:30.

Wilhelmina Jones, my office.


Full name, not good.


If this is about me being late,

sir, I really want to apologize.

Sit down.

ICB recently purchased

a small regional chain...

...that corporate wants

to re- brand and expand.

Now, they want to jump

on this ASAP.

So we need to make sure all the

restaurants are compliant...

...with corporate standards,

the new logos, signage...

...and, obviously, the menus.

- Exactly.

We think it has the potential

to go national.

- And how many stores currently?

- Six, in two states.

And who's the compliance director?



You've been working your tail off

on the Midas Pizza account...

...and I think it's time you took

the lead on your own project.

- Larry, thank you.

- Now, all the stores...

...are transitioning

smoothly to ICB standards...

- Well, that makes my job easier.

- Except for one.

They're not returning

our calls or e- mails.

And it's not just any store.

It's the original

flagship restaurant...

...and the founding family

still runs it.

Okay, so a little

more complicated.

Yeah, and we need you

to un- complicate it.

- Copy that.

- Now, this is a chance...

...for you to show us

what you've got, Ms. Jones.

You get it handled quickly,

you're looking at a promotion.

So, get packed.

I need you up there...

...and all over this brand

first thing in the morning.

Yes, thank you. Thank you.

I almost forgot.

What is the brand?


- And the problem store?

- Some fly- over town in Tennessee.

Sycamore something.

- Springs?

Yeah, that's it.

Sycamore Springs.

You're from Sycamore Springs?

But you're, like, cool.

- Thank you.

- When's the last time... were there?

- 15 years ago.

And your parents

still live there?

- No, they moved to Florida.

- Oh, natch.

But my crazy Aunt Tali still

lives there, married to her art.

And I sort of know the owner

of the restaurant.

- That's good, right?

- No.

He's the father of the guy

I used to date in high school.

Yikes. And now it's supes awkward

'cause he dumped you?

No. I broke up with him when

I finally got outta that place.

How'd he take it?

Not well.

But, I mean,

what was I supposed to do?

Stay in Sycamore Springs

for the rest of my life...

...when my high school

boyfriend's goals were... and drinking beer?

I made it very clear that

I wanted more out of my life...

...and just because he chose

to stay in that sleepy cow town...

...doesn't mean that

I have to throw away...

...the rest of my life.

Sounds like you

have some unresolved issues.

They're the ones with issues.

Maybe you could turn it

into a little vacay?

Damon Hill

Damon Graham Devereux Hill, (born 17 September 1960) is a British former racing driver. He is the son of Graham Hill, and, along with Nico Rosberg, one of only two sons of a Formula One world champion to win the title. He started racing on motorbikes in 1981, and after minor success moved on to single-seater racing cars. Despite progressing steadily up the ranks to the International Formula 3000 championship by 1989, and often being competitive, he never won a race at that level.Hill became a test driver for the Formula One title-winning Williams team in 1992. He was promoted to the Williams race team the following year after Riccardo Patrese's departure and took the first of his 22 victories at the 1993 Hungarian Grand Prix. During the mid-1990s, Hill was Michael Schumacher's main rival for the Formula One Drivers' Championship, which saw the two clash several times on and off the track. Their collision at the 1994 Australian Grand Prix gave Schumacher his first title by a single point. Hill became champion in 1996 with eight wins, but was dropped by Williams for the following season. He went on to drive for the less competitive Arrows and Jordan teams, and in 1998 gave Jordan their first win.Hill retired from racing after the 1999 season. He has since launched several businesses and has made appearances playing the guitar with celebrity bands. In 2006, he became president of the British Racing Drivers' Club, succeeding Jackie Stewart. Hill stepped down from the position in 2011 and was succeeded by Derek Warwick. He presided over the securing of a 17-year contract for Silverstone to hold Formula One races, which enabled the circuit to see extensive renovation work. Hill currently works as part of the Sky Sports F1 broadcasting team. more…
