Actor Martin Mull, in an interview on comedian Norm MacDonald's web-based show, NormLive, stated he came in and was interviewed for an hour by Norman Lear to be a writer on the show and at the end Lear thanked him and said they didn't need any writers. Six months later he was telephoned and asked to come in and read for a part, stating he was not an actor. See more »

TVLAND must bring this back for at least a few MARATHONS!
This should MUST be resurrected.
A more insightfully absurd and comically astute series has not been made. Mix the daily grind of ALL MY CHILDREN, the experimentation of MONTY PYTHON, the self-absorbed and urbane existentialism of WOODY ALLEN and the offbeat quality of BLUE VELVET and you have MARY HARTMAN MARY HARTMAN.
What a fabulous cast and what kooky writing! This is black comedy at its most tongue-in-cheek.
TVLAND bring it back, please!
