Neil Posted June 5, 2018 Report Share Posted June 5, 2018 If they can do "Valerie" without Valerie Harper, "Rosanne" without Rosanne Barr, why not.... "Here's Lucy" without Lucy, the sequel series entitled "Lucy's Family" Lucy Carter gets her dream job of secretary to the stars. Since the new job involves a lot of travel, she sublets her Valley Lawn Drive house to Mary Jane. After MJ divulges what really took place with her boss on that Santa Barbara trip, he is fired from the firm and disbarred, leaving Mary Jane jobless. Desperate for a quick replacement, Harry hires her--and soon regrets it. Once Lucy's relatives hear that she has vacated her house, both Lucy's mother Dede Hinkley (Elvia Allman) and brother Herb move in, despite Mary Jane's reservations. With too many Hinkleys underfoot, Kim moves in with Uncle Harry. Meanwhile, newlyweds Sam and Vanda buy the house next door to Lucy's. Stories involve Harry adjusting to his new secretary, even daffier than the one she replaced; veil-taking confirmed-bachelor Harry's sudden father-figure role with Kim at home; and Mary Jane's constant battles with the freeloading Hinkleys aided by neighbors Sam and Vanda. (Despite Mary Jane Croft being elevated to a starring part in this series, she's still listed under "with" in the closing credits.) A "Lucille Ball Production" (LBP, Inc.) I expect "MOT" to flesh this out!! 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
