Amie – #8 THE MARY TYLER MOORE SHOW

The Mary Tyler Moore Show

In the early 1960s Mary Tyler Moore paved the way as the first women to regularly wear pants in a sitcom. A decade later, The Mary Tyler Moore Show became the first series to showcase a single, independent career woman living in the city. It also featured some of the best talent and cutting edge writing of it’s time. Many of the characters, like Ted the dim witted, sex-crazed Anchorman, would still be funny in today’s market. Just ask Will Ferrell.

Cast: Mary Tyler Moore, Gavin MacLeod, Ted Knight, Edward Asner, Valerie Harper, Cloris Leachman, Georgia Engel, and Betty White.

Plot: The Mary Tyler Moore Show centered around Mary Richards, who moved to Minneapolis after a breakup with her fiancé and got a job as associate producer for the Six O’Clock News at a TV station, WJM-TV.
