Chances Are

A dead finds himself reincarnated as someone else and attempts to win back his wife and family as a new man.

Louie Jeffries has it all: a promising career, a beautiful wife, and a baby on the way.

One day Louie has a fatal car crash and finds himself in Heaven. Unsatisfied with the customer service, Louie jumps the gun and gets himself reincarnated.

For the next quarter-century, Louie's museum curator wife, Corinne, remains true to her husband's memory.

Meanwhile, Louie's soul grows up in the body of Alex Finch, an aspiring journalist.

Alex's memories of his life as Louie return after he becomes romantically involved with Miranda -- the daughter he never got to meet.

Soon, Alex, or Louie, is romancing his wife, spurning his daughter's advances.
