Basically, this was an earlier comic cousin of Murder, She Wrote.

The action took place in San Diego, California. British actress Glynis Johns played Glynis Granville, a neophyte mystery writer and amateur sleuth.

Keith Andes was her attorney husband (and partner in crime-solving), Keith Granville.

The childless couple always seemed to stumble upon the solution to a mystery, but certainly not without putting themselves in great peril.

Glynis was abruptly cancelled after 13 weeks. The CBS series was replaced by the short-lived Tell It To The Camera with Red Rowe.

Eight of the original thirteen episodes of Glynis were rerun in primetime from July to September of 1965 in The Lucy Show‘s regular spot.

In this time slot, Glynis ranked in the top ten. Glynis Johns attempted tempted sitcom stardom again in 1988 in the short-lived Coming of Age.
