Storyline

Lucy Carter, a widow with two teenage kids (Kim and Craig), moves to Los Angeles and takes a job as secretary to her supercilious brother-in-law Harrison Carter, owner of an employment agency. Lucy's overzealous manner often caused her to stumble into embarrassing slapstick situations, much to the chagrin of her best pal Mary Jane. Written by Marty McKee <mmckee@soltec.net>

User Reviews

I love this show.
1 May 2002 | by (Commerce, TX) – See all my reviews

I have always been a fan of Lucille Ball. She is the greatest commedienne of all time. To see here working with her own children was wonderful. Gale Gordon and Lucy had chemistry. You do not find that too often in a lot of television shows. This by far one of the greatest shows since "I Love Lucy."
