Occasional Wife
September 13, 1966 - August 29, 1967

Occasional Wife was a single season sitcom airing in 1966-1967 on Nbc.  The setting was the Brahms Babyfood Company where Peter Christopher worked.  The policy at Brahms was they only promoted married people. 

 Since Peter Christopher was a swinging bachelor he came up with an idea to have an Occasional Wife.  He met a hatcheck girl named Greta Patterson at a niteclub and convinced her to take the job.  He had her move in to his apartment building on the 9th floor and Peter was on the 7th floor.  Peter paid for Greta's art lessons and apartment plus gave her a small amount of money each month.

Any time Mr. Brahms was coming over or there was a social affair Greta needed to be there.

This got pretty complicated especially because Greta had a boyfriend.

Baseball announcer Vin Scully narrated this complicated sitcom.
