Open House (1989)

Show Summary

Open House is a pseudo-spin-off from one of FOX's original 9 shows, Duet. It picks off at the end of Duet, with one of the leading characters, Laura Kelly (Mary Page Keller), becoming a supporting character. At the same time, supporting characters Linda and Richard Phillips (Alison LaPlaca and Chris Lemmon) are now lead characters. Linda works at Juan Verde, a real estate office, with friend Laura, and generally quibbles with equally competitive Ted (Philip Charles MacKennzie). Rounding out the office are oddball Margo (Ellen DeGeneres, in her first TV appearance), goofball Scott (Danny Gans), and boss Roger McSwain (Nick Tate). Dave Hayes (Ray Buktenica) was a perrenially frustrated client of Ted's, who could never seem to find the right home for him. Richard Phillips played piano at bar frequented by the Juan Verde staff, but disappeared halfway through the show's run when he and Linda split.
