Based on characters created by Patricia Resnick for the 1980 motion picture of the same name, the ABC comedy series followed three secretaries, Doralee, Judy and Violet, as they waged office warfare (while trying not to jeopardise their careers) against their obnoxious boss, Mr Hart, and his equally obnoxious sidekick, Roz.

The girls originally worked for Consolidated Companies in Cleveland, Ohio which eventually became American Household products in New York.

ABC cancelled the show during season two, but it was picked up for syndication by TCF nearly three years later. This time the girls were working for a company called Barkley Foods International.
