Seven years after Ray Ellis abandoned his wife Olivia and two children, he is declared officially dead. That's when Ray reenters their life, only to find that Olivia is engaged to marry uptight Army colonel Dickey. Interested in reopening their old relationship, Ray moves next door to Olivia and their kids, hoping to assure them that he has changed his irresponsible ways, much to Dickey's chagrin. Written by

After SANFORD AND SON,Demond Wilson did two short-lived series,this one and THE NEW ODD COUPLE(he did Oscar,Ron Glass did Felix).The premise of this show had a husband who had abandoned his family return years later to try to reconnect with the wife and kids.I haven't seen it since its original broadcasts,but I liked it.Perhaps the idea wasn't appealing to a mass audience,but the cast was excellent.Helen Martin played the "mother-in-law Luzelle.Luzelle is French for killer.The day she moved in,the rats moved next door." At least that's what Demond Wilson would repeat during the opening credits.He was great,and it was a better show than THE NEW ODD COUPLE.Does anyone remember THAT'S MY MAMA? This was on for at least two seasons,and starred Clifton Davis and Theodore Wilson(who went on to play Sweet Daddy Williams on the popular GOOD TIMES).And Cleavon Little starred in TEMPERATURE'S RISING.
