Summary
The Mary Tyler Moore Show is one of the most beloved television shows of all time. It was an inspiration to a generation of women who wanted to have it all in an era when everything seemed possible. Mary and Lou and Rhonda and Ted tells the stories behind the making of this popular classic, introducing the groundbreaking female writers who lent real-life stories to their tv scripts; the men who created the indelible characters; the lone woman network executive who cast the legendary ensemble -- and advocated for this provocative show -- and the colorful cast of actors who made it work

Summary
Fans of actress Mary Tyler Moore will love this behind-the-scenes story about the making of her classic television series. It offers insights into how her show reflected changing American perspectives (it was the first sitcom to employ numerous women as writers and producers) and the legacy it left. This engaging chronicle provides plenty of detail on the show's writers, and the actors that a receptive audience came to love. - Description by Shauna Griffin
