Private Secretary

Show Summary

In this popular 1950s sitcom, Ann Sothern starred as Susie McNamera, a secretary to Peter Sands at his New York talent agency. Susie was always meddling in the personal life of her boss and of her friends at work, especially in matters of love. One of her favorite pastimes was playing matchmaker. A recurring character on the series, and Mr. Sands' chief competitor, was loudmouthed agent Cagey Calhoun. In an unusual move, Private Secretary, a CBS-TV series, also had two brief runs on another network. During the summers of 1953 and 1954, the reruns from the season just ended were shown on NBC, with the series resuming new shows on CBS each fall. Starting in the fall of 1954, this show alternated weeks with The Jack Benny Program through early 1957. In syndication, Private Secretary was retitled Susie.
