Leo & Liz in Beverly Hills is an American 1986 situation comedy broadcast Friday night at 8:30 p.m Eastern time by CBS starring Harvey Korman, Valerie Perrine, Sue Ball, and their lovable monkey Bernard. Leo and Liz Green were nouveau riche social climbers who had just moved to posh Beverly Hills from New Jersey and were desperate to fit in with their new surroundings, which they found to be quite intimidating. They had typical sitcom problems including zany servants, odd neighbors, and pretentious, snobbish in-laws, as their daughter Mitzi Sue Ball had married into a family of "old" money. The pilot for this program had been aired the fall before as part of George Burns Comedy Week. However, the program failed to deliver an audience as a mid season replacement and was canceled after only six regular weekly episodes were aired.
