1 9 9 2 – 1 9 9 3 (Australia)
13 x 25 minute episodes
Upwardly mobile solicitor Geoff Kennedy (Peter Fisher, Craig Bullpitt from Kingswood Country) moves into an apartment with his new wife Robyn (Linda Newton) and her daughter, Lisa (Kym Valentine) only to find his ex-wife, Cathy (Morna Seres) and children – Sarah and Jack – are living in the apartment below.
Cathy’s slow-witted new boyfriend, investment broker Taylor (Patrick Ward), was also on the scene.
Rounding out the cast was Emma Jane Fowler as Lisa’s friend, Danni, who had designs on Jack downstairs.
The football-playing boys and the ballet dancing girls were cute and cuddly, the women laughed at the uncouth habits of their men, and the men traded remarks about their careers.
The family dynamics in My Two Wives may have been new, but the jokes never offered any surprises.
This Channel Nine series re-used the same set as Hampton Court (1991), another sitcom written by Gary Reilly and John Flanagan (who also wrote Hey Dad!).
