Anyone remember a TV show from the 70s about three pretty female detectives and their never- seen boss?

The boss gave instructions about the episode's case over the phone to the girls, who just seemed to lounge around the office. They also drove cool cars. There was also a fat guy they worked with who served mostly as comic relief. There was a revolving door of actresses, but they were all really pretty. I think the show lasted a few years. For some reason I was thinking about the show today, and for the life of me I can't remember the name of the show. Does anyone else remember this series? I'd go to IMDB, but I don't remember any of the actors' name. Much thanks.

Pretty sure one of the girls' names was Jackie Lee who later worked for Kmart, and another one's was Farrakhan, and we have their very own Cheryl here on DL, I think. But I could be wrong.

They also had that weird lesbian who is a major hoarder to the point of wading through her house's garbage. That was written about here on DL by her assistant.

No no, it was the doorman who was never seen. He communicated through an intercom right near the door. The 3 ladies were Rhoda Fay, Brenda Fay and Ida Fay Morgenstern.

"Seck's Kittens," with Fred MacMurray's voice as Bernie Seck, their never-seen boss. I think the three girls were Meredith MacRae, Angela Cartwright, and a then-unknown Sissy Spacek.

That was a good one,OP! I remember the boss was Donna Pescow - that gal who always wore short fur jackets. She rode those other ladies pretty hard when they couldn't pay their rent!

They don't make 'em like that anymore.

That fat "man" was actually a woman, OP. Her name was Florida Evans, and the show was called "Good Times." It also featured the now-has-been sister of Michael Jackson, who experienced fleeting fame with a couple of albums in the '80s but today is best known for having obsessive fans who still think she's on par with Madonna.

"The Three Smooges". Somebody thought it would be funny to have three beautiful woman redo the old 3 Stooges routines.

Jim Backus was great as the unseen boss and the fat guy was actually the great grandson of Curly Howard.

The ladies loved it because they thought physical comedy allowed them to show their range as an actress.

Shame about the lovely Christopher Norris losing a foot in an on set accident though.

It was "Shields and Yarnell". I used to love that show. I can't remember all the actors, but a young Ana Alicia played the newbie detective, and the guy that played the fat boss/comic relief was Wendie-Jo Sperber.

Blansky's Beauties. Although written to be unseen, Nancy Walker as the boss would just walk on the set & improvise lines. It does explain the look of panic usually glimpsed in the eyes of the beauties.

I seem to recall one of the actresses had very thin lips and a pushed in face. She was gorgeous.

It's definitely Hogan's Heroes.

There was a fat guy in that who was comic relief...
