1960s / Occasional Wife - Failed Sitcom
For the 1966-67 season NBC introduced a new sitcom titled Occasional Wife. Here was the premise of the show: Peter Christopher (played by Michael Callan), an eager employee of a baby food company, is not allowed to progress up the corporate ladder unless he has a wife. He solves his problem by having a female friend, Greta Patterson (played by Patricia Harty)--who lives two floors up in the same apartment building--pose as his wife whenever necessary to fool his boss. Many humorous sequences occurred on the fire escape where a nosy neighbor--known only as Man-in-the-Middle (played by Bryan O'Byrne)--observed the deceitful goings-on. Occasional Wife started out well in the ratings but had slid into 64th place by the end of its only season. It was axed after 24 episodes. In real life Callan and Harty fell in love while making the show and were married during its short run. They eventually divorced, however. The narrator heard in the opening sequence should be recognizable to baseball fans: It's longtime Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully!
