The cast of the sitcom Mr. Belvedere (ABC, 1985-1990) will share show memories and answer fan questions in a Zoom reunion scheduled for today, May 29, at 8 pm ET.

Expected cast members include the entire Owen family – Rob Stone, Tracy Tofte Wells, Brice Beckham, Ilene Graff and Bob Uecker. The titled star, Christopher Hewett, died in 2001.

The series, based on the Gwen Davenport novel Belvedere, featured Hewett as British butler Lynn Belvedere, a live-in nanny who recorded his observations about working for a typical American family. Former Major League Baseball player and TV announcer Uecker also starred as the family’s father George, who was — in an example of art imitating life — a sportswriter.

You can find a handful of episodes, including this pilot, on YouTube:

Otherwise, Mr. Belvedere is currently unavailable to stream or watch over the air. Perhaps the Zoom reunion will be a good opportunity to lobby for its return.
