Miss Susan is a daytime drama which aired on NBC from March 12 to December 28, 1951. The show, originating from Philadelphia and later retitled Martinsville, U.S.A., aired for fifteen minutes at 3:00 p.m. ET on weekdays. The main writer was William Kendall Clarke.


The show stars Susan Peters, who had garnered attention in films such as Random Harvest before a 1945 hunting accident left her permanently paralyzed. Peters returned to films in 1948, with little success. In 1951 NBC approached her to star in her own series.

Peters played Susan Martin, a paralyzed attorney who moved back to her hometown of Martinsville, Ohio to practice law. Soon after Susan returned to town, she had to decide whether or not the family housekeeper, Laura, was an art thief. When not dealing with these matters, Susan agonized over marrying Bill Carter (Mark Roberts) who wanted lots of kids, but Susan did not know if she could ever have children.

Colgate, the main sponsor, pulled the plug on the low-rated show in late 1951, replacing it with The Big Payoff. Susan Peters, who had been in declining health during the series' run, died less than a year after the final episode.
