| Sidney Sheldon's lone TV misfire
Immediately after the last season of "I Dream of Jeannie", creator Sidney Sheldon concocted this sugary forgotten series, "Nancy", about a veterinarian who falls in love with a cuddly young lady who just happens to be the First Daughter... as in First Daughter of the President of the United States. Needless to say, so-called hilarity ensues as the two manages to carry on a relationship amongst security agents, reporters, and the lovably wisecracking Celeste Holm as Nancy's guardian.

In addition to "Jeannie", Sidney Sheldon also created "The Patty Duke Show", another sitcom with a resourceful, slightly daffy female. In "Nancy", the femme lead was just daffy, but cute. Of course, lightning did not strike twice, and Nancy and her entourage were impeached mid-season. Sheldon retreated to the written page, where he would have his greatest successes. It would be another eight years before he would create another successful, resourceful (but this time, smarter) lady heroine for TV, Jennifer Hart of "Hart to Hart".

And by the way, whatever happened to Renne Jarrett? "Nancy" is a Sidney Sheldon Production for the Screen Gems division of Columbia Pictures. 17 episodes were filmed for NBC in 1970.
