TV Shows - Mr. Belvedere
Mr. Belvedere is an American sitcom based on the Lynn Aloysius Belvedere character created by Gwen Davenport for her 1947 novel Belvedere. The sitcom starred Christopher Hewett in the title role, who takes a job with an American family headed by George Owens, played by Bob Uecker.
The show was originally broadcast on the ABC network from March 15, 1985 until July 8, 1990.
The premise of the program was that a middle-class family in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania, a suburb of Pittsburgh, takes in an English butler after he emigrates to the United States.
The posh butler, Lynn Belvedere, struggles to adapt to the Owens household. The breadwinner, George (Bob Uecker), is a sportswriter. His wife Marsha (Ilene Graff) is attending law school. At the show's start, oldest son Kevin (Rob Stone) is a senior in high school, daughter Heather (Tracy Wells) is a freshman, and Wesley (Brice Beckham) is in elementary school. Over the course of the series, George becomes a sportscaster, Marsha graduates from law school and starts a career as a lawyer, Kevin leaves for college and gets his own apartment, and Heather moves up in high school.
Each episode ended with Mr. Belvedere writing in his diary about the day in the Owens home.
