getTV expands its popular daytime programming block with two rarely seen
sitcoms, as the charming 1961 higher education CBS comedy Mrs. G Goes to College moves into the daily 6 a.m. ET slot, while the rare 1960 NBC rom-com Peter Loves Mary takes over at 7 a.m. ET starting March 20. This is the first time that both series have aired on television in over 50 years. Mrs. G Goes to College
stars EMMY® and TONY®-winning actress Gertrude Berg - a classic radio
trailblazer and one of the first women to create, write, produce, and
star in a long-running hit series—in her EMMY®-nominated role as Sarah
Green, a middle-aged widow who enrolls as a freshman at the local
university, where she brightens the students' lives with her kindness
and helps them through their struggles with her wisdom. The character
originally appeared as Aunt Sarah on the military sitcom Hennesey, starring Jackie Cooper; Cooper would later reprise his role as the titular Lieutenant in an episode of Mrs. G Goes to College.
The series co-starred noted character actress Mary Wickes, who also
received an EMMY® nod for her role as Maxfield; and acclaimed British
actor, and two-time Hollywood Walk Of Fame Star recipient, Sir Cedric
Hardwicke as Professor Crayton. Featured guests include Peter Lorre,
Alan Reed, Yvonne Craig, John Astin, and Marion Ross as Mrs. G.'s
daughter, a decade before she captured the hearts of viewers across the
world as Mrs. Cunningham in Happy Days.
