A Year in the Life

Show Summary

This warm, family drama, a spin-off from the acclaimed December 1986 mini-series of the same name, sensitively explored the lives of three generations of a large, prosperous Seattle family. Joe Gardner was the patriarch, a strong-willed but basically decent man who had grown up during the Depression (and the kids were never allowed to forget it!) and built the family's successful plastics business. In the mini-series, the death of his wife had brought his four grown children back together, despite their various problems. Anne, 35, was an ex-hippie, who had been shattered by the failure of her second marriage and had moved back into the house with her two teenage children, David and Sunny, both from her first marriage. Daughter Lindley, 31, was struggling to balance her career as a sales representative for Gardner Plastics with being a mother to her new baby, Ruthie, and wife to amiable patent attorney Jim. Jack, 30, was the black sheep of the family, a rebellious drifter still trying to "find himself" - to the disgust of his father! And Sam, 24, was a handsome, conservative preppie-type who had inexplicably married the flighty, free-spirited Kay. Sam also worked for the family firm and lived in the guest house while saving for a home of his own. Stories revolved around the tears and joys of these marriages and family relationships. Alice was Joe's on-again, off-again romantic interest.moreless
