Socially awkward librarian Penny Somerset, 40-ish, moves from a small Ontario town to New York City to care for her sharp-tongued aunt, the widowed Lydia Radziwill, a “black sheep” who decades ago defied her family to marry into Upper East Side aristocracy. Penny’s new co-worker – sarcastic, raunchy but sweet-natured Karen Soo – decides Aunt Lydia is bullying Penny, and convinces the shy, over-apologetic Canadian to take classes from celebrity Assertiveness Training coach Gina Marchetti. But when Gina realizes just how difficult it is to get Penny to assert herself, she decides to pass the challenge onto John “Johnny Mac” McElroy – a fellow Assertiveness trainer who’s also a retired tennis champ with a horrible temper, and (not coincidentally) Gina’s ex. (NOTE: The role of McElroy is intended to be either played by, or a recognizable twist on, notorious tennis “brat” John McEnroe.)
