This series had major production problems before even getting on the air, in part because NBC-TV, which was broadcasting it, demanded that the producers introduce happy endings for each show. This significantly changed at least one real-life story dramatized on the series ("The Bad Girl") in the book became ("Everybody's Girl") on the series. TV Guide reviewer Robert MacKenzie, who had read the book, commented that several of the stories' forced happy endings transformed the show from "steak into hamburger." See more »
I also recall this as being a summer series, although IMDb lists the it as being 'released" in December. As a high school kid, I loved the concept, and remember being quite moved by one particular episode. A girl who was part of a popular clique in high school, ends up in some kind of job assisting the poor. When she runs into these same friends again years later, she can no longer relate to them, due to their cruelty toward somebody she had brought (to a reunion?). I, too, would love to see this again. Perhaps it was a mid-season replacement starting in Dec. 77, and then was repeated in the summer of 78? Our family owned a cabin in the mountains, and we would spend a month there each summer. I remember that, during the summer this was broadcast, our TV died and I had to find a neighboring cabin with a TV, to make sure I didn't miss an episode.
Update 2010: My 30th reunion this year - would love to see this series.
