  • This groundbreaking series from the mid-1970s was helmed by Mike Nichols (CLOSER) and Aaron Spelling (CHARLIE'S ANGELS), and was a career-making showcase for such stars as Meredith Baxter and Kristy McNichol, among others. Focusing on an upper-middle-class California family, the show daringly portrayed controversial subject matter such as child abuse, extramarital affairs, and teenage alcohol dependency. The Lawrence family consisted of lawyer and patriarch Doug (James Broderick), housewife and mother Kate (Sada Thompson), and their children Nancy (Baxter), Willie (Gary Frank), and pre-teen Buddy (McNichol). The first two seasons follow the family through trials and tribulations that include Nancy's divorce, Buddy's first job, and a friend of Willie's who comes out of the closet.
