Description by OLDIES.com:

Ann Sothern is Susie, private secretary to talent agent Peter Sands (Don Porter), in this delightful series of comic adventures that ran on TV Sunday nights from 1953 to 1957. Susie, with long-suffering receptionist Vi Praskins (Ann Tyrrell), keeps the office of International Artists humming in the world of insecure actors, snobby writers and big-shot producers, while continuing to prove that the employees are often smarter than their employer! "Private Secretary" (AKA "Susie") was nominated for five Emmy Awards and continues to enchant all who come under Susie's lively secretarial spell.

What Every Secretary Knows: Peter desperately wants to make a deal for two of his rising singing stars with an opera impresario. Susie and the maestro's wife plot to get the two bigheaded big shots together.

How To Handle a Boss: Susie busts her writer's block when she asks a reporter friend to "ghost write" an article for her in a magazine. The result lands her in hot water with everybody in the office!

Not Quite Paradise: Vi's Aunt Martha gets the crazy idea that her niece and Peter are engaged to be married - and that Susie is the competition that must be eliminated!

Three's A Crowd: Susie finds herself in the role of "leading lady" in a love triangle with a new, eager-to-please playwright and a slick Broadway producer.

Product Description:

Enjoying a four year stint on American television screens in the 1950s, PRIVATE SECRETARY preempts shows about the media, such as CURB YOUR ENTHUSIASM, by about 50 years! Susie (Ann Southern) is Peter Sands's (Don Porter) secretary in the talent agency that he runs. But it's really Susie who controls the business, leading to some comic capers as she tries to keep Peter's clients happy and the Hollywood moguls at bay. Four episodes are included here.

Love these episodes. There were 103 episodes, from 1953-1957. Wish more would come on dvd. I love the old sitcoms.
