Marsha Posner Williams
knew that she wanted to work in television from a very early age. She moved to Los Angeles in her twenties and struggled to break into the business. She eventually did and worked her way up the chain, starting as an administrative assistant and eventually becoming an executive producer on top network shows. Williams' resume includes long-running hit shows like Amen, Night Court
, and Benson as well as short-lived "brilliant but cancelled" series like Hail to the Chief
and Good Grief
Though Williams' later years credits are very impressive, it is the show that she essentially got her start on, Soap
, that is closest to her heart. She is one of the very few people to have worked on the ABC show from the very beginning to the sitcom's untimely cancellation.
