Storyline

Yet another movie-turned-TV series that flopped was this comedy based on the 1987 Diane Keaton film of the same name. J.C. was the picture of Yuppiedom, a stylish, single, Harvard-educated lawyer aggressively pushing her way up the executive ladder at a large corporation. Dates called her "The Tiger Lady". Then on her doorstep appeared baby Elizabeth, left to her by a recently deceased English relative. J.C.'s high-powered career was thrown into turmoil. She tried hard to juggle the demands of instant motherhood and career, but never could seem to decide which life she wanted. Seemingly oblivious to her plight were Mr.Curtis, her demanding boss; secretary Charlotte; fellow lawyer Arlene; and officious young assistant Ken, who was constantly angling for her job. Helga was the fearsome nanny who took care of Elizabeth while J.C. played office politics. Written by TrinaPreston3aol.com

The Baby Boom of Television
20 January 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Maybe it was the writers' strike in 1988 that helped bring in the television recession of bad comedies and dramas, despite being based on the film of the same name and the same adorable identical twins playing Baby Elizabeth. The show could have worked if the network allowed it too. Kate Jackson replaced Diane Keaton as J.C. Wiatt and Jackson is a worthy television replacement for such a role. But the story was changed when they moved J.C. back to New York City with Baby Elizabeth. I liked it better in Vermont and thought that the move could be disastrous. The show became another series in itself with the same child but different mother. Regardless, I think they could bring this series out on DVD with the movie.
