Getting Personal aired from April until October 1998 on FOX.

Robyn ( Vivica A. Fox), was an administrative executive for Old Dog Productions, a small commercial production company in Chicago in this workplace comedy. She had been hired after a disastous blind date with Milo( Duane Martin), the firm's talented but self-centered creative director , who now-surprise -had to work for her. They found each other attractive but their egos wouldn't let them compromise enough to develop a viable working-or personal-relationship, and sarcastic sparks flew between them whenever they met. Sam ( Jon Cryer), Milo's excitable best friend was a film editor for the company who rode his bicycle to work and played bass with a jazz combo for recreation. The antithesis of Milo, he was very insecure and unsuccessful with women. Leon ( Reggie Hayes), was the firm's pompous art director and Shelly ( Nancy Cassaro), the cynical accountant who sided with Robyn on anything relating to men. Jack ( Elliott Gould), the ecentric owner of Old Dog, had hired Robyn to run the business side of the company so he could go back to directing, or playing golf or both.

This week: Stars in the new Fox sitcom Getting Personal (Mondays, 8:30 p.m. ET).

Vivica A. Fox

"It's a wonderful time to be a black actress," says the star who got her start in Independence Day. "We have no room to complain."
ust a few years ago, Vivica A. Fox's acting career was going nowhere. Broke and disenchanted, she considered giving up. Then an acting coach gave her advice: "She said, 'You have to stay ready because your life can change in a day.' It's true. My life changed in a day -- Independence Day."

Playing Will Smith's girlfriend in that mega-movie led to roles in Batman and Robin, Set It Off and Soul Food. Because your fortunes can change in an instant, Fox says, you must prepare for that moment.

She did that in ways big and small. Born Vivica Anjanetta Fox, she grew up in Indianapolis, where everyone called her Anjie. But when she hit Hollywood, she turned her name into a reminder for directors -- and for herself. "Vivica A. Fox," she says, grinning. "Vivica's a fox! Get it?"

A mix of sweetness and sass, Fox, 33, isn't bashful about her looks: "In movies, I play against my beauty, so you look inside the face." As for her role models: "Madonna came from the Midwest and built an empire -- that's what I want to do."

Unlike some actresses, she says she won't gripe about the dearth of good roles or why black women earn Hollywood's smallest paychecks. "We have no room to complain. It's a wonderful time to be a black actress. Five years ago, these other actresses and I were fighting for one part. Now we're all in the same films together."

After dating too many "bad boys," Fox says, her time has come in her personal life, too. "Bad boys collect trophies that collect dust. I don't deserve that."

In December, she'll marry singer Sixx-Nine, one of the good guys, she says. Her tip for Mr. Nine? "My trophy needs to be shined up every day because I'm a shining star!"

Getting Personal

FOX, 8:30-9 PM Starts SEPT. 11

"In the first episode, I'm going to catch on fire, and in the second episode, I'm not going to have my pants, which I'm really excited about," cracks Jon Cryer, who costars with Vivica A. Fox and Duane Martin in this Chicago-set sitcom. But can Fox get viewers excited about this show--which failed to ignite the Nielsens last spring--in its new Friday slot? Exec producer Jeff Strauss hopes so: "If people are tired after a long work week, if they want to kick back and see something funny and try to loosen up before Millennium comes on--well, we're there for them." Cryer is even more confident, boldly proclaiming, "Boy Meets World is toast!"
