In this TV series, produced by David E. Kelley, Williams plays Simon Roberts, an executive at a Chicago advertising agency, who has been married and divorced frequently but genuinely wants to be a part of his daughter’s life to make up for his past. He adds Sydney to the executive partnership after she improves his business. Everyone tends to listen to Simon over Sydney, even though Simon tends to accept risk too willingly while finding solutions for his clients’ issues. Co-starring Sarah Michelle Gellar and James Wolk.
