Fastidious Philadelphia Judge Walter Franklin has a plummy housekeeper, a sloppy court clerk, an icy secretary, and an obnoxiously ingratiating Assistant District Attorney.
The series aired on two different networks. ABC cancelled it after one season. It was then picked up by CBS for its second and final season. MTM Enterprises, which produced the series, had a stronger relationship with CBS at the time, which was not unlike ABC's relationship with Paramount Television, which respectively aired and produced Randall's previous series The Odd Couple (1970).

Judge Walter Franklin: To Mario Lanza.
Mario Lanza: I *am* Mario Lanza.
