Storyline

Peter, a junior executive at a New York business, figures out that single men at his company are generally passed over in favor of married men, who the top execs think are more stable. So Peter asks his friend and upstairs neighbor, Greta, if she'd be willing to pose as his wife for company functions. She agrees, not knowing how it'd affect her personal life. And whenever someone from his company unexpectantly dropped by "their" apartment, Peter would run up the fire escape two floors to fetch Greta, much to the bemusement of their neighbor in-between.

Occasional Wife should have run 5 seasons!
9 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 11 when O.W. premiered in 1966 and I really enjoyed this very amusing sitcom. I too was sad to see this series end only after one year. I remember reading that NBC was on the fence about canceling O.W., but they decided to go ahead and cancel this charming show. In 1992 Comedy central aired the reruns of O.W. and I was thrilled. I taped a handful of them and I still watch them occasional:) I hope that this show is released on DVD someday. Many short-lived shows have been released on DVD recently...The Monkees; Good Morning World; Ned & Stacy; Lotsa Luck; Gidget; well the list goes on and on...Please release O.W. and include interviews with Michael Callan, Patricia Harty and Bryon O'Byne. There is an audience out there who would love to get their hands on this series!
