Pete Bartel and Keely Steven's story is a life after divorce saga. Both have attempted a solo career with disappointing results until NBC (and Swell Shampoo) sponsors their reunion special. Complete with standards like "Black Coffee" "Daddy" and "Fever," their variety show takes a turn when Keely reveals that Pete had a wandering eye during their marriage. Full of audience participation, this show is every bit the variety show of the 60's that kept audiences glued to their TV sets. Duos like Sonny & Cher, Steve and Edie, Keely Smith and Louie Prima, and Donny & Marie perfected the variety show. And although fun, Pete 'n' Keely is a show about the intricacies of the duet, a pair of singers that are bigger together than they are apart.
