Hail to the Chief was a short lived 1985 television sitcom about the first woman President of the United States, portrayed by Academy Award-winning actress Patty Duke. The series premiered on April 9, 1985, and was canceled after seven episodes.



Hail to the Chief was similar in style to the TV sitcom, Soap (from the same producers as this series), in that it was a comedy with open-ended storylines that parodied a soap opera. Patty Duke had the starring role as the President, Julia Mansfield. The show focused on President Mansfield's attempt at balancing her political career along with raising her family.
