Although she has appeared in several television series and films, Hotchkis is best known for her role as Dr. Nancy Cunningham on the ABC sitcom The Odd Couple, which ran from 1970 to 1975.

The series follows the story of two divorced men, Oscar and Felix, who share a Manhattan apartment, and whose opposite personalities inevitably lead to conflict and laughter.

Before her days as Dr. However, Cunningham played Hotchkis on the NBC comedy My World and Welcome to It, the soap opera The Secret Storm, Bewitched, and General Hospital.

In the 1970s she had several roles on the shows Lou Grant, Charlie’s Angels, Mannix, The New Dick Van Dyke Show, Marcus Welby and The Lift and Times of Eddie Roberts, among others.

Legacy was eventually made into a film, starring Hotchkis.

Shortly after production for Legacy wrapped, Hotchkis was diagnosed with a benign brain tumor, which she was eventually able to successfully remove.
