Fay is an American sitcom starring Lee Grant as the title character. The series aired on NBC from September 1975 to June 1976.


Grant stars as Fay Stewart, a divorced woman in her 40s who after 25 years of marriage to attorney Jack Stewart starts a new job and begins dating.

The show first aired on September 4, 1975 and was pulled after the October 23 airing. It returned for 2 more episodes on May 12 and June 2, 1976. 10 episodes were produced. Four of them (the pilot, "Jack Remarries", "Mr. Not-So-Wonderful", and "Danny Falls In Love") were eventually re-edited into an overseas theatrical feature, Man Trouble, later included in a syndicated package of other MCA/Universal "movies" stitched together from their various short-lived TV series.

Grant was nominated for an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series after the series was cancelled.
