Series: Loving

Soap Opera that aired on ABC from June 26, 1983 to November 10, 1995. The show was notably co-created by Agnes Nixon.

The show was created as a response to the action/adventure and intrigue storylines dominating soaps in the 1980s, most notably featured on General Hospital. Unlike its stablemates, Loving would be a traditional soap opera with a major focus on romance.

The show was never a huge hit, generally ranking in the bottom 3 soaps during its 12 year run. Nevertheless, the show engendered a Spin-Off upon its cancellation called The City that would move most of the remaining cast to New York's SOHO District.

This show provides examples of:

  • Cross Over: The show was established as part of the shared universe with the other soap operas airing on ABC. The most notable crossover was the addition of Debbi Martin's Angie Hubbard character from All My Children.
  • Dramatic Half-Hour
