Susan St. James stars as Timothea Lamb, an American language student in Rome who hires on as a tour guide. For some reason, Timothea cannot help but get involved in the problems of her customers, notably a handsome "stowaway" who turns out to be a fugitive from the law. Filmed on location and first broadcast by ABC on November 6, 1972, Magic Carpet was intended as the pilot film for a weekly TV series (either a half-hour sitcom or hour-long "dramedy"), with Susan St. James and costars Jim Backus and Nanette Fabray (the wife of producer-writer Ranald MacDougall) as regulars. Instead, the project failed to post a sale, and St. James went on to costar in McMillan and Wife.
