Easy Street is an American sitcom starring Loni Anderson that aired for 22 episodes on NBC from September 13, 1986 to April 29, 1987.

Overview

The series stars Loni Anderson as L.K. McGuire, a onetime showgirl who manages to nab a young wealthy husband, only to have him die and leave her fending for herself against his embittered family, who are out to get L.K. out of the picture and away from her inherited money. Meanwhile, L.K. reconnects with a down-on-her-luck uncle, Bully Stevenson (Jack Elam) who has been on and off the streets of Los Angeles. L.K. invites him and his pal, Ricardo Williams (Lee Weaver), to move into her vast mansion, to the consternation of her snobbish inlaws, Eleanor and Quentin Standard (Dana Ivey and James Cromwell). Quentin tends to be a bit more tolerant of L.K. and her family, but Eleanor can't stand them, and does everything possible to get rid of them all. Arthur Malet co-stars as Bobby, the McGuire's butler.
