Attorney Wayne Bennett (Don Gibson) and his wife Nancy (Paula Houston initially and then Eloise Kummer), residents of the small town of Kingsport, found themselves constantly entangled with their friends’ dilemmas in this live melodrama from Chicago.
Among their friends were their next-door neighbours Blaney Cobb (Jack Lester) and his wife Meg (Beverly Younger), who planned to adopt an 8-year-old girl named Hope, and Wayne’s old buddy Bert Wells, who Wayne cleared of theft only to learn later that he had done the deed.
Bert added to Wayne’s distress by announcing he would divorce Ellie, his wife of 15 months, to wed his secretary Helen Meade.
