This Saturday afternoon NBC series related events in the lives of the newlywed Naughtons – architect David (Hugh Reilly) and his naïve 18-year-old wife, Claudia (Joan McCracken).
On the threshold of womanhood, Claudia struggled to cut the apron strings that bound her to her mother (Margaret Wycherly) and adjust to married life with her somewhat bewildered but patient husband.
Other regulars included David’s sister Julia and his brother Harley.
Running from 6 January to 30 March 1952, the series was based on a radio show of the same title, which in turn stemmed from the stage and the big screen (Dorothy Maguire had played the title role in the movies and on stage).
The character of Claudia was originally created by Rose Franken in magazine stories.
