Introduction to Knots Landing

the basics of the television series

Knots Landing was one of USA’s favorite night time series. First airing on the 27th of December 1979, it ended after its 14th year on 16th of May 1993, making it the 2nd longest prime time drama in USA television history.

Created by Michael Filerman and David Jacobs, they had the idea to make a show which showed scenes from a marriage but with several families. They put together the show about four married couples and took it into CBS. CBS liked the idea of the show but felt it needed to be more glitzy and more saga like so they came up with Dallas. In 1979 Knots Landing was born as a spin of from the success of Dallas following the wayward Ewing son Gary Ewing and his wife Valene set up home in California.

Knots Landing primarily concentrated on the lives of several couples:

Gary and Val as the young married couple

Sid and Karen the solid couple

Laura and Richard the couple in turmoil

Kenny and Ginger the newlyweds

Sid and Karen were written to be the core of the show but as the show progressed this began to change and Knots Landing was born and never looked back, even outlasting its original spin off – Dallas.
