Found this one on you tube, in three parts. Bette Davis is Liz, "the decorator", and the awesome Mary Wickes is her assistant, Viola. In this first episode that apparently never made it to air, Ed Begley is the Judge, who yells his way through the show. His daughter "Missy" is getting married to "Jim (don't see their names in the credits on IMDb.. anyone know who they were ?) The first half has some clever laughs, but the rest of it is just a bunch of yelling and family squabbles. REALLY clever idea about her moving in with any clients for whom she is going to work ... good setup for a TV series. Since this one never made it, I guess we'll never know if she was going to stick around with the judge, or were there going to be new clients each week? The credits at five minutes in say "Guest star - Ed Begley". Miss Bette made this one in between Sweet Charlotte and The Nanny, so I'm sure missing out on THIS project didn't disturb her much. I'm a HUGE fan of mary wickes... if you haven't seen her in Now Voyager or The Man who Came to Dinner, ya gotta go see em! She's great, and totally under-rated. Directed by Richard Kinon,who seems to have done LOTS of television series. Too bad this one didn't happen.
