    A self made millionaire from Hoboken Nick Foley needs to change his image fast. To acquire a family image this playboy needs to do a complete 180. In a stroke of genius deduction he decides to adopt six orphan girls. He takes them to live in his Bel-Air mansion. After his idea backfires in a complete deal breaker, he realizes it wasn't that important anyway and he asks the girls to stay permanently.

    The show was set in 1961 and focused on the girls misadventures and problems they faced growing up in the 60s from small dances to the Cuban Missile Crisis. This show was a first in television history as it was the first and only to incorporate music into the plot line. A television musical featuring music from the 50s and 60s rewritten to fit the plot.moreless
