Excuse My French (Series) (1974-1976)

Excuse My French was a CTV sitcom featuring the comic trials and tribulations of a marriage between Peter, an English-Canadian law student and Marie-Louise, a French-Canadian waitress. Stuart Gillard and Lise Charbonneau starred as the couple.

Earl Pennington played Peter's father, a wealthy newspaperman who sees the solution to everything in dollar signs. Paul Berval played Gaston Sauve, the father of the bride, a proud yet open-minded man who was willing to roll with the punches.

The series, produced at CFCF-TV in Montreal, was judged the best television show of the year by the Montreal branch of the Association of Canadian Television and Radio Artists (ACTRA) in 1975.
