Turnabout originally ran Friday evenings on NBC from January through March, 1979. The sitcom starred John Schuck (Holmes & YoYo) as Sam and Sharon Gless (Cagney & Lacey) as Penny – a married couple who magically switch places. Sam’s spirit enters Penny’s body and vice versa – thanks to a mysterious Gypsy statue in their home. Laughter and awkward situations, such as Sam visiting a gynecologist, ensued. For around six weeks.
It’s quite difficult to scrounge up info on Turnabout (only what you see below is to be found on YouTube, for example) and I only have the vaguest memories of the show myself. Here’s the intro for the almost-forgotten series which was based on a 1931 novel. Enjoy.
