The Imogene Coca Show

Show Summary

Just a few months after ending her career-making run on Your Show of Shows ended, Imogene Coca was back starring in her own series. Unfortunately, it was a series that couldn't decide on a format. The original sit-com premise sounded ideal: Coca played a TV star beginning a new series. Billy DeWolfe and Ruth Donnelly were regulars. After a scant two weeks, the format was scrapped and the series became a standard variety series with songs, comedy sketches and weekly guest stars. Still more changes were ahead; in February 1955, the show again turned sit-com. This time, Coca was cast as a newlywed with a husband and two wacky neighbors, Helen and Harry Milliken (Bibi osterwald and David Burns, respectively.) Lasting just a season, the show was telecast live from New York City.
