This live sitcom had also been on radio and was set in the Gramercy Apartments in New York City.
As a summer replacement for Martin Kane, Private Eye, it starred real-life married couple Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy as Ben and Liz Marriott, who had been married for 17 years.
Ben had a fairly successful law practice and Liz was a former buyer for a department store chain, but she became a housewife when the kids, ten-year-old Pete (Malcolm Broderick) and 15-year-old Emily (Susan Strasberg), came along.
This show may have been extremely short-lived, but it was very historically significant. It was among the first television shows broadcast in colour.
The series was to have begun its run on 1 July 1954, but Jessica Tandy was ill, so the debut was delayed one week.
Cronyn and Tandy made a brand new filmed pilot episode in 1957, attempting to bring the series back to prime time but to no avail.
