Premise:
George Baxter was a highly successful corporation lawyer who was always in control of everything at the office, but
almost nothing at home. When he returned from the office at day's end, to his wife Dorothy, and his young son Harold,
he entered the world of Hazel. Hazel was the maid and housekeeper who ran the Baxter household more efficiently than
George ran his office. She was always right, knew exactly what needed doing, and pre-empted his authority with alarming,
though, justified regularity.

There was an unaired pilot episode with Edward Andrews playing Mr. Bee with a different house. This episode
was remade with Don Defore. Edward Andrews was a fine character actor, but he made a horrible Mr. Baxter. [PM]
