He's Running The House...And The State
Following his breakout success on the legendary sitcom "Soap," star Robert Guillaume reprises his popular role as beloved butler Benson DuBois in the fabulous first season of this hit spin-off. Though a longtime fixture of "Soap's" crazy Tate family, Benson is sent by his employer, Jessica, to help run the disorganized household of her widowed cousin, Governor Eugene Gatling (James Noble). Once there, the fast-thinking, quick-witted servant soon finds himself not only managing the Governor's mansion staff, headed by housekeeper Gretchen Kraus (Inga Swenson) and helping to raise the Governor's daughter, Katie (Missy Gold), but even advising the Governor himself. The Governor may be the boss, but it's Benson who's in charge in this riotous series that's a must-have DVD for any classic TV comedy collection.
