Gimme a Break!

A feisty housekeeper named Nell helps a widowed police chief raise his three daughters in a sassy sitcom that mocked stereotypes by showing a loving relationship between a black woman and a white family. Over time the household residents changed and the location shifted from California to New York, but Nell was constant, always there to dispense wisecracks and wisdom.
