Storyline

Sitcom about the antics between two twins, Kate and Allison (played by real life twins Liz and Jean Segal). Allison was always the serious outgoing sister, while Kate was more fun and laid-back. In the first season, the twins lived in Des Moines with the father Art, who ran a health club/dance studio. In the second season, the twins headed to New York City to live with their aunt Margo (who wrote children's books). Allison enrolls in design school trying to win points from hard-to-impress Mr. Arrechia, while Kate tries to break into acting. Written by Pat McCurry <laraspal00@aol.com>

I wanted to have an identical twin so much!
17 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't know. I think there is something incredible about identical twins. Since twins don't run in my family, I doubt that I will ever have twins myself. The Sagal twins (Liz and Jean) are also sisters to Katey Sagal. The first season had them together in the Midwest. The second season moved them to New York City to live with an aunt played by the wonderful Barbara Barrie. Now remember that the show has not been seen in about 20 years so I'm going by memory, I remember it aired briefly on NBC and then it got cancelled. Back then, sitcoms had the time to develop. It might have surfaced in syndication but it never did. I think it would have prospered and remain popular.
