onourown5Tall, skinny Maria Bonino (Lynnie Greene) and her short, chirpy friend Julia Peters (Bess Armstrong) were two secretaries in a high-powered New York advertising agency who find themselves promoted to art director and copywriter and begin their new Madison Avenue careers with enthusiasm.

They dream up campaigns for products such as “Halt, the new 39-hour deodorant with Prypomorphylene – it’s what the astronauts used to keep dry.”

J.M. Bedford (Bob Randall) was chairman of the board, Toni McBain (Gretchen Wyler) the President, April Baxter (Dixie Carter) a copywriter, Eddie Barnes (John Christopher Jones) a TV commercial producer, and Craig Boatwright (Dan Resin) a salesman.

Maria and Julia also had to deal with the problem of being single in New York City in what was essentially Laverne and Shirley in a different city with no brewery . . .
