Up at Ours (Series) (1978-1982)

Up at Ours
Up at Ours was the first Newfoundland-produced drama series ever to hit the CBC network. The show was a lively comedy-drama series created by Gordon Pinsent and produced at CBC St John's. It was set in a not-so-run-of-the-mill St. John's boarding house run by Mrs. Ball, played by Mary Walsh. Mrs. Ball has operated the boarding house for 15 years and her compassion was tempered with a bit of fun and a devil-may-care attitude. Mrs. Ball had a star boarder — Jack House, a shy, withdrawn man, an expert at the one-line putdown. Among the other characters were Dolph, the taxi driver and Mrs. O'Mara, close friend and neighbour of Mrs. Ball.
