Love That Jill
Love That Jill is a forgotten 13-episode American situation comedy starring husband-and-wife duo Robert Sterling (1917-2006) and Ann Jeffreys (1923-2017) which aired on the ABC television network from January 20 to April 14, 1958. In the story line, Jeffreys plays Jill Johnson, the owner of a modeling agency who comes into business conflict but personal romance with Sterling's character, Jack Gibson. Jimmy Lydon (as Jill's secretary, Richard) and Barbara Nichols (as Ginger) had secondary cast roles.
Series guest stars included Chuck Connors (1921-1992), just before his The Rifleman western series premiered on ABC, Robert Anderson, and Gerald Mohr (1914-1968).
Love That Jill replaced The Ray Anthony Show at 8 p.m. Eastern on Monday evenings midway in the 1957-58 season. It ran opposite The George Burns and Gracie Allen Show, which at the time was airing its last episodes on the CBS network. Five months after Love That Jill vacated the airwaves, CBS offered, also on Monday evenings, The Ann Sothern Show starring Sterling's first wife, Ann Sothern (1909-2001).
