A popular night time soap opera, it followed the adventures of five families living in a coastal suburb of Los Angeles in California: Gary and Valene Ewing, relatives of the popular Ewing clan of Dallas; Sid and Karen Fairgate, their all-American neighbors; the troubled Richard and Laura Avery; young newlyweds Kenny and Ginger Ward; and divorcee Abby Cunningham, Sid's scheming sister.

Though it had outlasted all of its contemporaries (even Dallas (1978)) and was still in the top 40 ratings, the network and the producers mutually agreed that that the show's 14th season (1992-93) was to be its last as further budget cuts would have to be made should it have stayed on air for a 15th season. The producers and the network decided that less episodes would be produced (19) for the final season and all actors were required to be absent from at least some of the episodes to save money. However, Michele Lee offered to forgo her usual salary and film some episodes for actors union "scale pay". She therefore she became the only character to appear in all 344 episodes. See more »
"Knots Landing", for 14 years, was the greatest television experience ever. From December 27, 1979, until May 13, 1993, we followed the sudsy lives of our favorite characters. From Val and Gary's initial movie into the neighborhood, to Abby's arrival and her nonstop manipulations, to Laura's terminal brain cancer and the impact it had on everyone's lives, to the ultimate psycho Jill, it was all terrific entertainment. Not overly-glossy and implausible like other night-time soaps, "Knots" had a realism all it's own. It will be missed and remembered fondly.
