On Our Own was a sitcom broadcast 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 who also share an apartment. Toni McBain (Gretchen Wyler) was their boss, while April Baxter (Dixie Carter in one of her first network primetime roles) and Phil Goldstein were their coworkers.

On Our Own was filmed on location in New York in front of a live audience, which was somewhat unique for a show of its genre during the late 1970s, as most sitcoms were typically taped in Hollywood.
