It is the first 30' daily drama series ever made in Romania of the Eastenders/Coronation Street type and the first series with an entirely professional production system. It had a huge cast of over 20 regular actors, many of which were soon to become stars in subsequent series of other TV stations (Andrei Aradits, Adela Popescu a.o). A bit strange to the Romanian audience due to its western approach, ensuring an underlying educational side, the show gradually gained a regular audience. After a successful first season of 200 episodes, the series was inexplicably stopped just as the ratings were going up. Soon after, all major TV stations started to produce series, especially soaps/telenovellas and sitcoms, some of which used professionals trained by In Familie (e.g. Iura Luncasu, director of several successful telenovellas for Acasa TV.)
