Life of Riley

The Life of Riley began as an idea for a radio program. The show jumped to television in 1949 on the DuMont Network. It starred Jackie Gleason as Riley, with Rosemary Decamp as his wife and Gloria Winters and Larry Lees as the children. This TV version of the show lasted one season with Gleason moving on to other projects including the groundbreaking program The Honeymooners.
