Patricia Wettig Controversy

The cast and creators behind the seminal series open up about the show’s surprising success, controversial storylines and its long-lasting legacy.
Had it not been for some home remodeling, there might never have been a Thirtysomething.
Marshall Herskovitz and his partner Ed Zwick had taken a development deal with MGM Television in the mid-1980s, even though they were far more interested in making movies than a TV show to follow their Emmy-winning telefilm Special Bulletin. That’s why, Herskovitz now admits, “we felt we were scamming people a little.”
