  • Notes

    • This TV movie pilot was a ratings hit and actually was the highest rated program of the week that it premiered. However, the subsequent series (replacing the Patrick Duffy program The Man from Atlantis) did poorly in its Thursday night time slot.

    • Kate Jackson was nominated for an Emmy in the category Outstanding Actress, Single Performance, Drama or Comedy for her role as the free-spirited Robin in this pilot to the series.
