TV Fact #383 – November 10th, 2015:

The 1985 TV film “An Early Frost”, was the first major film, made for television or feature films, to deal with the topic of AIDS. Being a landmark television film, you can imagine they didn’t want to get it wrong.

In fact, screenwriters Ron Cowen and Daniel Lipman spent two years on the teleplay of the film in development and underwent at least thirteen rewrites before the Standards and Practices division at the network accepted it for airing.
