To Rome With Love was a 30 minute comedy series on CBS. It was about a teacher (Michael) and his three daughters who lose their wife/mother respectively to an early grave. So Michael decided to get a new start on life for himself and his girls by leaving their home in Iowa and taking a teaching job in Rome, Italy at a school for Americans living abroad. Michael's sister Harriet followed them to Rome and did everything in her power to get him to change his mind and return to the cornfields of Iowa but she failed. After Harriet went home, Andy Pruitt who was Michael's father-in-law came to visit his grandchildren and ended out staying.

To Rome With Love Trivia
Michael Endicott and his daughters lived in the state of Iowa before moving to Rome.
To Rome With Love was produced by Don Fedderson Productions. They also produced "Family Affair" and "My Three Sons" and used that to their advantage by filming several crossover episodes where characters from each of the three series would appear on the other two!
Even if you never saw To Rome With Love, you still may be familiar with some of John Forsythe's other work including starring roles on other TV shows including, "Bachelor Father (1957)", "The John Forsythe Show" (1965), "Charlie's Angels (1976)" (As the voice of Charlie), and "Dynasty (1981)".
For some reason To Rome With Love just never caught on with audiences. Initially audiences obviously didn't care for the meddling Aunt Harriet character so she was sent home to Iowa (and off the series) shortly after the premiere. Walter Brennan who had already played a loveable grandpa on ("The Real McCoys") was brought in for season two but by then it was probably too late. Once viewers leave a series it's nearly impossible to get them back.
