April's sidekick is the Brit Mark Slate, and their boss is the crusty Mr. Waverly. Written by

April Dancer was originally to have been named Cookie Fortune. The name April Dancer is attributed to James Bond creator Ian Fleming, who had suggested the name for an UNCLE operative when he helped in the creation of The Man from U.N.C.L.E. (1964) prior to his death. See more »
The map upon Mr. Waverly's office wall contains numerous errors. Among these are the depiction of Canada and Newfoundland as two separate states, the omission of East Pakistan, and the conglomeration of all the states of Indo-China into a country named Siam. This map appears in numerous episodes. See more »

This show was born from the potential from it's parent show, The Man From UNCLE, in a fantastic episode called "The Moonglow Affair." However, due to some mysterious fluke the producers changed the actors in the lead. This was a fatal flaw: not due to the actors, but their chemistry was very far off.
The plots of "Girl" were troubled and not very interesting. Even the supposed 'best' episode, "The Mother Muffin Affair," (starring Boris Karloff in drag), is at best a meddling excuse for a show. Such a disappointment.
If "Girl" can prove anything, it's that sometimes even the best of intentions can bear no fruit. A real shame, too.
