Originally to have been titled Five Women, this short-lived comedy series starring Eileen Brennan was originally meant to be about five women who live in the same garden apartment complex in Queens, New York. Their husbands would be heard in the next room or on the phone, but never seen.

The concept changed to four women plus Brennan’s husband, played by Jerry Van Dyke.


Marcia Rodd played divorced neighbour Elaine Dowling, Helen Page Camp was widowed Millie Capestro, and Lousie Williams her daughter, Jill.

Other working titles for the show included The Better HalfQueens Court2800 Queens Boulevard, and Friends and Neighbors.

The show was cancelled after a trial run of nine episodes.
