TV Show Plot For Threes Company
In the Three's Company series Janet and Chrissy search for a new roomate after their previous female roomate leaves. They find Jack Tripper asleep in the bathroom after the roomate's going away party. Jack is a cooking school student, who is living at the YMCA. He is the perfect roomate, however the landlord Mr. Roper doesn't approve until they make up the story that Jack is gay.
Joyce DeWitt plays the character of Janet Wood, who was the reliable voice of reason in the apartment, and appeared in every season of Three's Company.
Suzanne Somers played the ditzy but loveable blonde Chrissy Snow. The blonde sex symbol Somers left Three's Company in 1981 when the series was peaking in it's ratings.
