Albert & Jane Miller were an ordinary middle-class couple who became bored with their lives and decided to pretend to be the butler and cook for the very wealthy head of Dutton Industries, Charles Dutton, and his family.

Both stars starred in related Lorimar Television productions. Larry Hagman played J.R. Ewing on Dallas (1978) and Donna Mills played Abby Cunningham Ewing Sumner in the "Dallas" spin-off Knots Landing (1979). Their employer Charles Dutton was played by David Wayne who appeared in the Dallas miniseries as Jock Ewing's rival "Digger" Barnes. See more »
Larry Hagman and Donna Mills play a young couple who, seeing they can't afford it themselves, decide to work as a butler and maid so they can sample "The Good Life". Quite a funny sitcom with fine characters. Series is set on the mansion of the Dutton family along with their politically active hippie son. Not as slapstick or goofy as Hagman's earlier I Dream of Jeannie sitcom but has some fine bumbling moments, especially trying to hide the fact that they aren't really servants.
