The Flying Nun is an American sitcom produced by Screen Gems for
ABC based on the 1965 book The Fifteenth Pelican, written by Tere
Rios. It starred Sally Field as Sister Bertrille. The series
originally ran on ABC from September 7, 1967, to April 3, 1970,
producing 82 episodes, including a one-hour pilot episode.
Developed by Bernard Slade, the series centered on the adventures
of a community of nuns in the Convent San Tanco in San Juan, Puerto
Rico. The comic elements of the storyline were provided by the
flying ability of a novice nun, Sister Bertrille.
In the hour-long series pilot, Chicago native Elsie Ethrington
arrives in San Juan from New York City after her arrest for having
been involved in a protest; she then adopts the name of Sister
Bertrille. It is also later learned (in the episode "My Sister,
The Sister") that Sister Bertrille comes from a family of physicians,
and that she is the only member of that family who did not follow in
their footsteps. She instead became a nun, joining the Convento San
Tanco, after being impressed by the missionary work of her aunt, and
broke up with her boyfriend of eight months, a toy salesman.
