Welcome to The Nancy Walker Show guide at TV Tome. Sarcastic, wisecracking Nancy Kitteridge had an ideal life.
Ten months of the year she was an active career woman,
head of the Nancy Kitteridge Talent Agency which she ran
from her Hollywood apartment. Two months of the year,
when her navy husband of 29 years returned for his annual
shore leave, she was a newlywed, madly in love. Then
disaster struck. Hubby came home to stay, and he seemed
intent on both bringing navy-style order to her chaotic
life and making up for 29 years of lost time romantically.
Ken didn't see why that gay, unemployed actor named Terry
should be kept around the house (Terry earned his room
and board by serving as Nancy's secretary), and in fact
he thought she should close down the telent agency
entirely. Adding to the confusion was Nancy's hand-
wringing, hypochondriac daughter, Lorraine, son-in-law
Glen, and Michael, the precocious, six-year-old son of
boy-wonder TV network
Husband Kenneth abruptly retires from a seagoing Navy Career, threatening their comfortable long-distance relationship.
Nancy tries to transform chapters of Kenneth's humdrum Navy memoirs into exciting scenarios for a wartime TV series.
Nancy is still basking in the afterglow of the most ""incredibly romantic"" night of her marriage when a client shows up to declare her long-harbored passion for Kenneth.
