The Nancy Walker Show

Show Summary

Sarcastic, wisecracking Nancy Kitteridge had an ideal life. Ten months of the year she was an active career woman, head of the Nancy Kitteridge Talent Agency which she ran from her Hollywood apartment. Two months of the year, when her navy husband of 29 years returned for his annual shore leave, she was a newlywed, madly in love. Then disaster struck. Hubby came home to stay, and he seemed intent on both bringing navy-style order to her chaotic life and making up for 29 years of lost time romantically. Ken didn't see why that gay, unemployed actor named Terry should be kept around the house (Terry earned his room and board by serving as Nancy's secretary), and in fact he thought she should close down the telent agency entirely. Adding to the confusion was Nancy's hand- wringing, hypochondriac daughter, Lorraine, son-in-law Glen, and Michael, the precocious, six-year-old son of boy-wonder TV network executive Teddy Futterman.

  • Nancy Walker as talent agent extraordinaire has her life complicated by the return of her long absent Navy commander husband, Bill Daniels.

    Nancy Walker was a true comic genius. This show, one of Norman Lear\'s creations during his heyday, was a bit ahead of its time with an openly gay character and a woman as owner of a talent agency. Bill Daniels played Nancy\'s husband, a recently retired and straight laced Navy commander. Beverly Archer played the couple\'s sad sack daughter married to James Cromwell (much before the pig movie that brought him deserved acclaim). With the strong cast and stronger producers behind it, this fish out of water-odd couple formula might have worked but the show faltered early and the network chose the axe.moreless
