Was TV’s “Bridget Loves Bernie” (CBS, 1972-73) based on a movie?

The TV series “Bridget Loves Bernie” was loosely based on Abie’s Irish Rose (1946), in which an Irish girl named Rosemary (Joanne Dru) marries a Jewish boy named Abie (Richard Norris), leading to family conflict.

In the TV show, Meredith Baxter played Bridget and David Birney played Bernie.
