With mention of Dennis's other early stuff I thought I would start a thread on this one, which I must confess that I have not seen any episodes of. This was a 1960s sitcom that Dennis was shipped off to the USA for very early on his acting career.
According to the IMDB, Dennis appeared in 11 episodes but Wikipedia says that 27 were made. It also starred British-born Judy Carne who appeared in 'Danger Man' and 'Thriller' and who was later married to Burt Reynolds.
The show focuses on the difficulties that Heather and Patty experience as they live in each other's families.
Fair Exchange replaced Rod Serling's The Twilight Zone on CBS's fall schedule in 1962. The series was the first hour-long sitcom since the Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour, but it was dropped. After mail protested CBS's decision, the network revived Fair Exchange in a half-hour format, but again the series failed in the ratings and was finally cancelled.
The Twilight Zone would replace Fair Exchange mid-season, albeit in an hour-long format
Here is the intro...
This is also an early picture of Dennis and mention of the series on this blog here: link
Based on what I have read here I might prefer watching the 'The Twilight Zone' to this. However I am curious to see Dennis in an early US sitcom, more so perhaps due to some very dodgy sponsorship nonsense in the intro.
