Getting Together was a musical situation comedy, which aired on the ABC television network during the 1971-72 season. It starred Bobby Sherman and Wes Stern as Bobby Conway and Lionel Poindexter, a songwriting duo. The pilot for the series had aired the previous spring the first season finale episode of The Partridge Family named "A Knight in Shining Armor", where Lionel and Bobby were introduced to each other by the Partridges.

Sherman and Stern's characters were reportedly based on the real-life songwriting team of Boyce and Hart, who had written hits for The Monkees ("Last Train to Clarksville", "Valleri"), Jay and the Americans ("Come a Little Bit Closer"), and others. New music of course was a staple of the series, provided by much of the same team that created the Partridge Family songs and records.

Airing in the same time slot as breakout CBS-TV hit All in the Family, the show never gained the ratings hoped for, and quit the air at midseason after thirteen episodes.
