Premise

A kind of `Cosby' or `Father Knows Best' for the times, about a trucking-company executive, his wife and their three kids in suburban Connecticut. A steady performer for ABC, `Wife' ranges from issue-oriented to slapstick. It's very much the vision of star Damon Wayans (also a coexecutive producer), who based it in part on his own life, and frequently uses family members as actors, directors and screenwriters.
