Plot Synopsis

As told from the perspective of a 12-year-old girl who hasn't spoken in years, this series follows Steve Wilde, a filthy-rich and immature playboy, who is trying desperately to win (or buy) the heart of his childhood sweetheart, Emmy Kadubic, the uber-liberal humanitarian who got away. The son of an oil tycoon, Steve hasn't had to work a day in his life and has always gotten everything he's wanted -- with one exception: the love of Emmy. The daughter of a former Wilde housekeeper, Emmy is an earnest do-gooder who has spent her adult life trying to save the world and is content living with an indigenous tribe in the Amazon rainforest. She doesn't know it, but her 12-year-old daughter, Puddle, just wants to be a normal kid experiencing her adolescence in a normal place. When her adopted tribe is threatened by Wilde Oil's expansion into the rainforest, Emmy attends Steve's self-thrown "Humanitarian of the Year" award ceremony to convince him to help her cause. Steve is unwilling to help because fighting Wilde Oil (a/k/a Dad) means putting his meal ticket in jeopardy, but this time he won't let Emmy slip away again. To win her heart, he enlists the only other people in his life who can help: Migo Salazar, Steve's employee/sidekick/errand-boy; Fa'ad Shaoulian, his Oxford-accented neighbor and frenemy; and Mr. Lunt, his manny-turned-secretary. So with Emmy committed to doing good for nothing, and Steve being a good-for-nothing, will this hopelessly mismatched pair ever reconcile their differences?
