''He and She''

Posted on

Long before Paul and Jamie Buchman, there were Dick and Paula Hollister of CBS’ He & She. The series, which ran for only one season (1967-68), shines brighter in retrospect due to its influence on later sitcoms. Richard Benjamin played Dick, creator of a cartoon called Jetman; his real-life wife, Paula Prentiss, costarred as his self-employed, free-thinking wife, Paula — a novelty for those pre-feminist times. Also a hoot is costar Jack Cassidy’s eccentric Oscar North, star of the live-action Jetman show and model for MTM’s Ted Baxter.
