Shades of Topper. When George Elliot, his wife Susan, and their two children moved from New York to Beverly Hills, they had no idea that the sumptuous home they had bought was haunted.

The resident ghost was not a sheet-shrouded apparition, however, but the beautiful and sexy former owner, deceased movie star Jennifer Farrell. Jennifer decided to take 14-year-old Joey Elliot under her wing and help him adjust to life in California. She also thought he could use some help with girls, especially if he wanted to keep up with his more worldly next-door neighbor and new friend, Marc. Under normal circumstances, Joey was the only one who could see Jennifer, which meant that his habit of talking to the furniture confused and worried his family and friends.

There was the requisite walking through walls and objects floating in midair, but the focus of the show was on Jennifer's relationship with Joey and the spectacular wardrobe worn by Ann Jillian.
