Nancy Smith was the attractive young daughter of the President of the United States. She met a young veterinarian from Center City, Iowa (near Des Moines) and they fell in love. Unfortunately, being under constant surveillance by the two agents of the secret service (Turner & Rodriguez) that did nothing to promote the romance at this point and Nancy's Chaperone, Abigail and Adam's Uncle Everett also seemed constantly to get in the way, not to mention the press. The President was never shown on camera, but his aides were and his voice was heard on occasion. On November 5, 1970, The Couple got married at Adam's House. Written by Ben Rowe <>

Sidney Sheldon's lone TV misfire
22 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Immediately after the last season of "I Dream of Jeannie", creator Sidney Sheldon concocted this sugary forgotten series, "Nancy", about a veterinarian who falls in love with a cuddly young lady who just happens to be the First Daughter... as in First Daughter of the President of the United States. Needless to say, so-called hilarity ensues as the two manages to carry on a relationship amongst security agents, reporters, and the lovably wisecracking Celeste Holm as Nancy's guardian.

In addition to "Jeannie", Sidney Sheldon also created "The Patty Duke Show", another sitcom with a resourceful, slightly daffy female. In "Nancy", the femme lead was just daffy, but cute. Of course, lightning did not strike twice, and Nancy and her entourage were impeached mid-season. Sheldon retreated to the written page, where he would have his greatest successes. It would be another eight years before he would create another successful, resourceful (but this time, smarter) lady heroine for TV, Jennifer Hart of "Hart to Hart".

And by the way, whatever happened to Renne Jarrett? "Nancy" is a Sidney Sheldon Production for the Screen Gems division of Columbia Pictures. 17 episodes were filmed for NBC in 1970.
