Three’s Company 1977-1984
Janet Wood and Chrissy Snow are a pair of career girls living in Santa Monica. When their other roommate Eleanor moves out after getting married and having a baby they begin the process of looking for a replacement when they find party crasher and aspiring chef Jack Tripper sleeping in their bathtub. When the girls taste his cooking they decide to ask him to be their roommate in a very platonic arrangement. Unfortunately, this doesn’t go over well with their prudish landlord Stanley Roper, who thinks that there will be nothing but hanky panky going on after he moves in. However, the girls tell Roper that the very heterosexual Jack is gay in order for him to move in. The only person who know’s about the ruse is Roper’s seemingly oversexed wife Helen. The Ropers later sell the building to real estate magnate Bart Furley who hires his self-described ladies man (in his own mind) brother Ralph to be the building’s manager. A few years into the arrangement, Chrissy moves back to Fresno to be with her ailing mother and is at first replaced by her cousin Cindy, who later is replaced by pretty young nurse Terri Alden. All the while Jack, who despite his best efforts, tries to make it with his roommates.
