This is more a double biography of Corday family & the show.
NBC sure underestimated the "little lady" aka author's widowed mom in her role as executive producer in late 60s to early 80s. I sure chuckled at NBC misogynistic directive to show more skin & she shot back what about the guys in briefs & boxers for the mostly female audience. Sure sympathize on author speaking out on his older brother's battle against mental illness. Interesting behind the scene politics as changing demographics, & reduced budgets as soap operas died out.
Author dished some dirt on certain producer whom NBC foisted on show as part of leveraged deal. However, he was generous on the cast & crew.
