Storyline

Peter, a junior executive at a New York business, figures out that single men at his company are generally passed over in favor of married men, who the top execs think are more stable. So Peter asks his friend and upstairs neighbor, Greta, if she'd be willing to pose as his wife for company functions. She agrees, not knowing how it'd affect her personal life. And whenever someone from his company unexpectantly dropped by "their" apartment, Peter would run up the fire escape two floors to fetch Greta, much to the bemusement of their neighbor in-between. Written by Tony B

This show can't be done today !!!!
26 May 2008 | by country_tannerSee all my reviews

I remember watching Occasional Wife back in the 1980s when it aired on the old CBN cable network. While the show itself was OK ( it had its moments ) but the opening of the show pretty much, well was the show. The plot and everything can be found within the first 30 seconds of the program.

A previous post wondered why this show isn't available on DVD. I think I have a hunch as to why. The act of a company hiring only those who are married is illegal today and if a company was found to do such a thing they could find themselves into very big trouble. Prehaps its for this reason why we may never see Occasional Wife come to DVD or even be seen anywhere on TV again.
