Dear John is about Drake Prep high school teacher John Lacey who is dumped by his wife, Wendy, via a Dear John letter. Wendy ends up with everything in the divorce settlement, including custody of the couple’s son, forcing John to move into an apartment in Rego Park, Queens.
John soon joins the One-2-One Club, a self-help group for divorced, widowed, or lonely people. The show weirdly aired into the early 2000s, even though it ended in 1992.
