Barbara Eden played a pretty widow who served as the head writer for a hit soap opera who real life - dealing with the show's mean-spirited star and troubled producer at work and her son and her boyfriend at home - is also a soap opera.
Col. Nelson is on a long-term, top-secret space mission. Jeannie cannot bring him home (temporarily) to hear their son's important academic presentation without knowing exactly where he is in the first place. The general in charge of the mission won't reveal anything. Things are further complicated when Jeannie's sister (Jeannie II) reminds Sham-Ir, the head of the genies, that a genie on Earth cannot go more than 3 months without an earthly master. (Col. Nelson is no longer Earthly, being in space.) Sham-Ir give Jeannie I a fortnight (14 days) to either find Col. Nelson or get a new master, a single male. (Col. Healy can't help, since he's now married.) Written by
Jeannie seems to have lost her newfound independence from the last TV sequel, as well as her reason for being with the absence of her master, who's off on an extended space mission (Larry Hagman is absent again). With the exception of the existence of Jeannie and Tony's son, none of the continuity developed for the earlier "15 Years Later" movie is followed.
The plot is contrived (Jeannie must find a temporary master while Tony is away), and there's little nostalgia value, as Jeannie and Roger are the only two characters from the original series present. If you want to see how things turned out for Jeannie and Tony after the original series ended, skip this one and seek out the earlier reunion, instead.
