TV Fact #220 – June 1st, 2015:

The premise for the comedy-drama sitcom “One Day at a Time” (1975-1984), a family led by a single working mom, was inspired by actress/writer/single mom Whitney Blake who co-created the show. Perfectly enough, Blake’s real life children, actress Meredith Baxter, would go on to play the popular sitcom mom character Elyse Keaton on “Family Ties” (1982-1989). There’s quite an interesting cycle of sitcom mother figures in that family.
