This week’s MeTV 50.2 Spotlight is "I Dream of Jeannie!"
The madcap comedy originally aired on NBC from 1965 until 1970.
The show revolved around Major Tony Nelson (Larry Hagman) and his genie named Jeannie (Barbara Eden). Adding to the craziness was the supporting cast – Major Healey (Bill Daily), Dr. Bellows (Hayden Rorke) and his insufferable wife Amanda Bellows (Emmaline Henry).
The first season was aired in black-and-white. Rumor has it the network wanted to save money on the show since they didn’t believe it would last more than one season!
"I Dream of Jeannie" airs weeknights at 8:30pm on MeTV 50.2.
