Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And All the Brilliant Minds Who Made The Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic

The 1970s TV classic The Mary Tyler Moore Show changed the medium in many ways: It elevated the form, combining comedy and pathos in a way that hadn't been done before.

It showed that TV writing could be smart. And it depicted the life of a single, professional woman over 30 who was in no hurry to get married. Jennifer Keishin Armstrong, author of Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And All the Brilliant Minds Who Made The Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic, tells the behind-the-scenes stories of how this sophisticated series came together, thanks to forward-thinking producers, one of the greatest ensembles in history and the female comedy-writing pioneers who brought their own experiences to their scripts.

A book signing follows the event.
