All played characters who did the same thing..Dunne did it first, then Webb in the 40's, .Lynley and Hope in the 60's

Irene Dunne- Theodora Goes Wild

Clifton Webb -  Sitting Pretty

Carol Lynley - Return To Peyton Place

Bob Hope - Bachelor In Paradise


Each character they played has written a book in the films

Not exactly but it's sorta close. They were all married to men they worked with on their shows, they didn't marry them while on the show they were married before their hit shows. and in Desi's case a jack of all trades (maybe not writer) Not just producers, the were writers, directors and they formed production companies together. Yes all divorced their spouses, one might make a link about how these mega successful women who worked so closely with their husbands on their hit shows ALL wound up getting divorced.
