Located in the idyllic but fragile beach paradise of sunny San Diego in the 1980s, Physically is a half-hour dark comedy based on Sheila Rubin (played by Byrne), a quietly tortured, seemingly conscientious housewife who supports her clever but controversial husband’s offer to the State Assembly. But behind closed doors, Sheila has her own dark, funny outlook on life that she rarely lets the world see. She also battles a complex set of personal demons related to her self-image … that is, until she is liberated by the most unlikely source, the world of aerobics.
Sheila is initially enthusiastic about the exercise itself and finds its real path to empowerment when she discovers a way to combine that newfound passion with the burgeoning technology of videotape to create a revolutionary company. The series traces its epic journey from a choked, overlooked trailblazer to a powerful, confident economic force as Sheila transforms into someone we take for granted today (but who was completely radical at the time) – the female lifestyle guru.
