A lot of great television shows are set in some of the biggest U.S. cities such as Chicago or Los Angeles, or perhaps a coastal area like Netflix’s Outer Banks; but did you know that a 1981 series on ABC was set right here in Dayton?

Maggie was a sitcom that ran for one season on ABC from October 24, 1981, to May 21, 1982. The show had quite a stellar cast, staring Miriam Flynn as the title character Maggie Weston, a housewife living in Dayton. James Hampton played Len Weston, Maggie’s husband, and long before Everybody Loves Raymond hit the airwaves, Doris Roberts stared as Loretta Davenport, Maggie’s friend and hairdresser.
