Scarecrow and Mrs. King is an Americanmarker television series that aired from October 3, 1983, to May 28, 1987 on CBS. The show starred Kate Jackson and Bruce Boxleitner as divorced housewife Amanda King and top-level "Agency" operative Lee Stetson who begin a strange association, and eventual romance, after encountering one another in a subway station.

Plot

Amanda King (Kate Jackson) is a divorced housewife who lives with her mother, Dotty (Beverly Garland), and her two pre-adolescent sons Philip (Paul Stout) and Jamie (Greg Morton). One afternoon Agency operative Lee Stetson (Bruce Boxleitner), codenamed "Scarecrow", hands her a packet while he is being pursued. He later has to track her down to recover it, inadvertently getting her involved with his case. Inquisitive after the case, Amanda seeks to learn more about the Agency, eventually going to work for them first in an office role and later training to become a full agent, while keeping her new job a secret from her family. She works under Lee's boss Billy Melrose (Mel Stewart) and with dismissive fellow agent Francine Desmond (Martha Smith). Amanda and Lee work together frequently, though he is initially reluctant to work with the "rookie", but eventually they become a good team. As the series progresses, they develop a friendship that turns into a romantic relationship. Eventually they decide to marry, but they still must keep the marriage secret from their employer and their families.

Production

Due to Jackson's developing breast cancer during the fourth season, her role was drastically reduced in later episodes and the series was canceled after the season was over.

Media

The entire series was made available for online viewing through AOL's ShashControl service from January through August of 2009. The series is currently scheduled to be released to Region 1 DVD in 2010 by Warner Home Video.
