It revolves around three young law school graduates who had just joined the prestigious firm of Bass and Marshall as associates, beginning their five-to-seven-year trial period. Daughter of a poor New York family, Leslie recently graduated from Columbia, and felt for the oppressed. Bass and Marshall did not usually represent the oppressed. Tucker...was a Midwesterner slightly out of step with his Ivy League Colleagues, a little naive but very charming. Sara was a Boston blueblood, bright as well as sexy. They were all at the mercy of a hierarchy including such oddballs as formidable but slightly dotty Senior Partner Emerson Marshall...and dedicated junior partner Eliot Streeter, who had only one goal -- to take over the firm...Counterpointing all this class was Johnny Danko, the 21-year-old mailboy, whose only goal was to make time with beautiful chicks.

In the listing for the American TV show entitled "The Associates" (1979), which you enumerate as tt0078563, you are missing the ENTIRE principal cast. This was made up of the following actors:
Short, Martin (I) as Tucker Kerwin; Regalbuto, Joe as Eliot Streeter; Mills, Alley as Leslie Dunn; Smith, Shelley (I) as Sara James; Thomerson, Tim as Johnny Danko; Hyde-White, Wilfrid as Emerson Marshall
I can't find any other way to tell you that you should correct this omission. I hope you read these comments.
This was a fine, funny TV program. It was the first wide exposure for Tim Thomerson, who was hilariously hip and cool, and for the sensationally beautiful Shelley Smith. But the man who stole the show was Wilfrid Hyde-White as the senior partner whose off the wall reminiscences always ended with an unexpected kicker that usually left you rolling on the floor.
I don't suppose there will ever be a way for those of us who watched and laughed at this show to see it again, or for the unfortunate millions who never had the chance. More's the pity, for it was first class entertainment. But I hope at least that IMDb can correct the credits problem.
