TV show description:
This light-hearted sitcom revolves around Ann Marie (Marlo Thomas), an aspiring and frequently unemployed actress. Ann moved from her small hometown of Brewster, New York to make it in the Big Apple. While she waits for her next acting part to come along, she takes different offbeat temporary jobs and frequently gets herself into a lot of jams. Though they support their daughter, Ann’s conservative parents, Lou and Helen Marie (Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp), are nevertheless concerned about her lifestyle and aspirations.

Ann’s boyfriend is Donald Hollinger (Ted Bessell), a writer for Newsview Magazine. He’s an understanding guy who’s always on hand to help Ann get out of her predicaments and frequently finds himself getting pulled into them. Ann and Donald’s friends are Jerry Bauman (Bernie Koppell) and Margie “Pete” Peterson (Carol Ann Daniels, then Ruth Buzzi).

Each episode opens with a strange incident or a discussion that foreshadows the story. The scene ends with someone exclaiming “…that girl!” and pointing to Ann. The camera freezes on her and the show’s title appears as the theme song begins.
Canceled and renewed TV show
