ABC’s “American Housewife,” which premieres Oct. 11, focuses on a mom (Katy Mixon) raising her three kids in the swank town of Westport, Connecticut. Here are five other series that were set in the Nutmeg State:

LUCY IN CONNECTICUT (1960) During the 1956-57 season of “I Love Lucy,” Lucy (Lucille Ball) and Ricky (Desi Arnaz) bought a country home in Westport, where they experimented with the joys of suburban life. These episodes were repackaged four years later as this short-lived summer series.

BEWITCHED (1964-72) Darrin (Dick York, Dick Sargent) and Samantha Stephens (Elizabeth Montgomery) resided at 1164 Morning Glory Circle in Westport, where she did her best to hide her special abilities.

WHO’S THE BOSS? (1984-92) Tony Danza starred as Tony Micelli, a retired major league baseball player who relocated to Fairfield, to work as a live-in housekeeper for divorced advertising executive Angela Bower (Judith Light).

JUDGING AMY (1999-2005) Amy Brenneman played Amy Gray, a Manhattan corporate lawyer who, after separating from her husband, moved back to her childhood home in Hartford to work as a judge in family court there.

THE CARRIE DIARIES (2013-14) A look at the growing-up years in the fictional town of Castlebury of Carrie Bradshaw (AnnaSophia Robb), a couple of decades before she became Carrie Bradshaw.
