The Governor and J.J is about William Drinkwater, the Governor of a mid-western state. He has become a widower, and must have a First Lady to carry out certain duties and functions. He turns to his young daughter Jennifer Jo, who works at the local zoo. What happens next is the classic young generation versus older generation, left versus right, and father versus daughter formula. The show was basically geared to the younger generation, so the young daughter almost always won. The Governor and his staff were just there to be sticks in the mud. Dan Dailey was fantastic as the Governor and Julie Sommars' was very nice as the unstoppable daughter. Dan Daily picked up a Golden Globe award for the show. The show did have is problems, but it remained a very nice lighthearted comedy and on CBS. I think it would play well today.
