Loving

Show Summary

Loving, a soap opera created by Agnes Nixon & Douglas Marland in 1983, aired for 12 long years on ABC, but never was a success on daytime. The show premiered as a TV movie on primetime, and during it's early years, it centered around the blue-collar Donovans and the blue-blood Aldens. The stories revolved around alcoholism, post-traumatic stress syndrome, murders, and all storylines known to the world of soap operas.

In 1995, ABC no longer wanted to keep Loving on it's schedule. The ratings kept falling. Yet, ABC didn't want to just make it disappear, so they asked the head writers to write a storyline which could allow some of the character to return in a spin-off called "The City." The show's last storyline about a serial murderer was one of the best of the show. The show ended on November 10, 1983 with 3,169 episodes.
