Storyline

In 1979, NBC was in last place and their only hit sitcom at the time was "Diff'rent Strokes." Eager to capitalize on its success, the network gave co-star Charlotte Rae her own series in which her character of Mrs. Edna Garrett was now housemother and mentor to a group of girls at an upscale border school. After a slow start, adjustments in the premise and casting during the second season made the show a hit. Cast members talk about the ups and downs of the production, including those who were let go after the first season. Also covered are the struggles by some of the girls to keep their weight consistent. The show went off the air in 1988. Written by Attmay
