About This Show

Daddy Long Legs tells the unusual tale of Jerusha Abbott, the oldest orphan in the John Grier Home until one day an anonymous benefactor decides to send her to college, so long as she writes him a letter once a month. Unaware of her benefactor’s identity, she invents a nickname for him: Daddy Long Legs. Through her letters, Jerusha shares her experience of discovering her own identity and learning of literature, adventure and love. But one key fact eludes her – who is Daddy Long Legs?
