Garry Marshall Week: Angie

Donna Pescow was riding high after the success of Saturday Night Fever. Pairing her up with super producer Garry Marshall seemed like a no-brainer. So ABC greenlit Angie, a sitcom about a young lady from the wrong side of the tracks falling in love with a wealthy man. Despite being from opposite worlds, the pair quickly become engaged. Unlike the other shows featured during Garry Marshall week, Angie was a gigantic success. After the first season, it looked like Angie would have a long run as a successful television show. The show's second season even began with the highly anticipated marriage of the couple. However, the ratings quickly took a dive and never recovered. Instead of celebrating a third season, the show was canceled.
