William Drinkwater was the governor of a quiet Midwestern state. Since he was a widower, his "first lady" was his hip, bright, opinionated daughter Jennifer Jo, who worked as a zookeeper. Despite their differences in age and politics (he was conservative, she leaned towards the left), the two got along extremely well and loved each other very much. Maggie was the governor's secretary, Sara the maid, and George his press secretary.Written by

This show starred Dan Dailey & Julie Sommars as a Governor (father) & a wild teenage daughter (Sommars). Both the principals did well in their roles. Dailey made a very convincing Guv while Julie at still less than 30 was still young enough to pass as a teen age daughter. She could pore on the charm too, which this passion seemed to be gone by the time she did Matlock.
The series was smartly produced by Leonard Stern & Arnie Sultan who also were producing Get Smart. The scripts were funny, and the veteran cast was excellent in support too. For some reason it never got any traction & lasted only 1 season. In a way too bad as there were worse programs around.
I remember the protest theme being touched in 1 episode, when a rock singer had a hit on the radio called "Hang It Mr Govenor!" & the daughter was listening to it. For some reason, this show never got any respect, but it was well done.
