    All 15 Episodes from the Emmy Award®-Winning Series

    and Pat Harrington, Jr. Will Be Available in a Two-Disc Set
    with Exclusive Bonus Features

    Culver City, CA (February 12, 2007) – Though created by husband-and-wife writing duo Whitney Blake and Allan Manings, One Day at a Time indelibly displayed the imprint of its legendary producer Norman Lear. The series depicted a divorced mother raising two headstrong teenage daughters while trying to maintain a career and, like other Lear comedies (All in the Family, Maude, Mary Hartman, Mary Hartman), was occasionally controversial, tackling topical family issues such as teen sexuality and money problems in a candid, straightforward manner. On April 24, Sony Pictures Home Entertainment debuts One Day at a Time: The Complete First Season on DVD featuring all 15 episodes in a two-disc set. The series stars Emmy®-nominee Bonnie Franklin, three-time Golden Globe® nominee Valerie Bertinelli (who won twice), Mackenzie Phillips, Emmy and Golden Globe winner Pat Harrington, Jr., and Richard Masur.

    The bonus materials include The One Day at a Time Reunion Special, which originally aired on CBS, in which Franklin, Bertinelli, Phillips and Harrington are reunited to reminiscence about the show nearly 30 years after it debuted. The special, which incorporates additional footage not seen in its original airing, also features interviews with recurring cast members Masur, Shelley Fabares, Nanette Fabray, Michael Lembeck, and Glenn Scarpelli. One Day at a Time: The Complete First Season will be available for $29.95 SRP. One Day at a Time debuted mid-season on December 16, 1975, and remained a Top 20 show in the Nielsen ratings for CBS during most of its run. Over the course of nine seasons, the series aired 209 episodes and was nominated for three Emmy Awards (winning two) and nine Golden Globes (winning three). Highlights from the first season include episodes where Julie (Phillips) debates going “all the way,” Barbara (Bertinelli) tries to get her parents back together, Julie flirts with her teacher to get a better grade, David (Masur) proposes to Ann (Franklin), Julie’s date develops a crush on Ann, and Ann’s ex-husband Ed (guest star Joseph Campanella) decides to remarry.
