    Nancy was initially portrayed by Elayne Heilveil in the first season before being replace by Baxter-Birney the following season.

    The series became the subject of a two decade lawsuit filed by one of the series' original writers against producer Aaron Spelling.

    The initial showrunners had previously worked on the family drama series 'The Waltons.'
    Kate Lawrence continued the tradition of unconventional, feminist women such as the titular characters in 'Mary Tyler Moore Show' and 'Laverne and Shirley.'
    The show was nominated three times at the Primetime Emmys for Outstanding Drama Series.
