Series Info

Producer Norman Lear's satiric take on a dysfunctional political family, which includes the clueless Sen. William Powers, his demanding wife and his illegitimate daughter. Several folks involved with this witty but failed sitcom fared better with later endeavors: Series creators David Crane and Marta Kauffman moved on to `Friends,' and costar David Hyde Pierce began his stint as Niles Crane on `Frasier.'
