Don Gardner is a rather traditional middle-class man who wants to support his family on his income alone. The Gardners' finances, however, dictate that his wife Ginny also take a job, although even with her working full-time there never seems to be enough money to make ends meet. Don and Ginny have two children; teenaged Kelly is their uninhibited and outgoing daughter and 12-year-old Mark is their shy son. Don's complaining mother, Olive, lives with the family and spends most of her time criticizing everyone around her. The Gardners struggle to be a normal, middle-class family, but Olive and the children always manage to make life complicated.[1][2][3]



James Komack created Another Day and was its executive producer. Paul Mason and George Kirgo produced it. Episode directors were Burt Brinckerhoff, Hal Cooper, Nick Havinga, and Gary Shimokawa. Episode writers were Charlie Hauck, Dinah Kirgo, Julie Kirgo, Carl Kleinschmitt, Lynn Phillips, and Bill Taub.[1][4] Paul Williams wrote and sang the show's theme song.[1]
