On Our Own is an American sitcom broadcast Sundays at 8:30 pm (EST) on CBS as part of their 1977-78 schedule. It featured Lynnie Greene as Maria Bonino and Bess Armstrong as Julia Peters, two employees in the Bedford Advertising Agency in New York City who also share an apartment. Toni McBain (Gretchen Wyler) was their boss, while April Baxter (Dixie Carter) and Phil Goldstein were their coworkers.

On Our Own was shot at CBS studios in Manhattan and edited at Unitel. The editor was Frank Herold. The show was filmed on location in New York in front of a live audience, which was somewhat unusual for a show of its genre during the late 1970s, as most sitcoms were typically taped in Hollywood.

The show aired from 9 October 1977 until 27 August 1978.[1]
