Series Description

The John Forsythe Show was a 30 minute comedy series on NBC about a retired Air Force Major who inherited a girls school. He and the lady principal of the school had one disagreement after the other about how the school should be operated. The Major, after all, was a bachelor and had no idea of how to deal with females of any age, much less the students at his school.

John Forsythe Show Trivia

The girls school was very exclusive and was located in San Francisco, California.

One of the students (Marcia) was played by Page Forsythe who was John Forsythe's real-life daughter.

John Forsythe starred on several other popular TV shows including, "Bachelor Father (1957)", "To Rome With Love (1969)", "Charlie's Angels (1976)" (As the voice of Charlie), and "Dynasty (1981)".

About halfway through the series' only season, Major Foster and his buddy Ed Robbins became undercover agents for a secret government agency. The messes they got into added to the comedy antics of the show. They continued to interact with the school, it's employees and the students. The "spy" aspect was simply added into the scripts.
