Executive Producer
Wm. T. Orr

US Comedy series 1964-65  34 episodes x 30 min bw
release date 14Sep64
starring

George Burns as himself

Connie Stevens as Wendy Conway
with
Ron Harper as Jeff Conway
James Callahan as Danny Adams
J. Pat O'Malley as Mr. Bundy
Bartlett Robinson as Willard Norton

Premise:
An apartment house owner (George Burns) has one particulary
dizzy lodger (Connie Stevens).
George Burns takes a kind of back seat to a substitute
Gracie. The result is mildy appealing and quite stylish.

Connie Stevens had previously starred in the Warner Brothers detective
series
"Hawaiian Eye" (1959-63) as Cricket Blake (134 eps x 60 min)
More recently Connie Stevens starred in the comedy series
"Starting From Scratch"  (1988-89) 

Text Comments - fromthesidelines
- The deal George made with the studio that had Connie Stevens under contract was an unusual one:
in order to secure her services as his co-star on "Wendy and Me", he had to produce another series
for her studio
No Time For Sergeants (WB) (1964-65) starring Sammy Jackson
which appeared just before his on Monday nights [8:30pm(et)].
Both were cancelled at the end of the season. This was George Burn's unsuccessful attempt to revive
"THE BURNS AND ALLEN SHOW", with himself again appearing as "interlocutor" and "Greek chorus".
Unfortunately, ABC scheduled it on Mondays at 9pm, opposite "The Lucy Show" on CBS and "The Andy Williams
Show" on NBC
