Ally McBeal Turns 20: Top Five Moments of All-Time

9 September 2017 2:00 PM, PDT | TVovermind.com | See recent TVovermind.com news »

I can still remember the first time the idea of a unisex bathroom was introduced during the show. It might not seem so crazy now, but 20 years ago, it was practically taboo. And that’s exactly what Ally McBeal brought to network TV: a lot of fierceness, a lot of smarts, and a lot of plenty else.

A flawed protagonist. A tone that turns easily from drama to comedy to smash-cut fantasy. A young and fetching professional woman who is more than willing to revel in her weaknesses.

Those sound like all the elements for a pitch that could make the rounds of premium cable and streaming services today. But in fact they were the were the essential ingredients in a Fox series that premiered 20 years ago: “Ally McBeal.”

The series birthed by David E. Kelley at the height of his network TV power defied easy categorization even as it quickly resonated with its post-yuppie, pre-millennial target audience.

To its creator’s surpise, “Ally McBeal” sparked a national conversation about the state and status of women in women’s movement. Remember the 1998 Time magazine cover that featured an insouciant Calista Flockhart juxtaposed against images of Susan B. Anthony, Betty Friedan and Gloria Steinem and asked “Is Feminism Dead?” Kelley »

Author: Zehra Phelan

Saturday Night Live’s Seth Meyer’s production company, Sethmaker Shoemeyers Productions, have begun development on a reboot of the 60’s classic comedy TV series The Munsters.

The show, which is being developed for Universal TV and NBC, is said to be following the same format as the original show with thirty-minute episodes and will focus on the Munster family trying to stay true to themselves while living in the hipster haven of Brooklyn.

Originally airing in 1964, the series only last two years with only seventy episodes under its belt before being dropped due to low ratings after the premiere of Batman. It followed a family of friendly, quirky monsters and was a satire of both traditional monster movies and the wholesome family fare of the era.

All the costumes and the characters, except one, were based on the classic films from Universal Studios between the 30’s and 40’s. »
