Recommended Posts

Do you know "King's Crossing" ? It was an American nighttime soap opera which aired on ABC from January 16 to February 27, 1982 on Saturday night at 8:00pm for seven episodes.
Cast : Bradford Dillman, Mary Frann, Linda Hamilton...

 

The troubled Hollister family retreats to a small California town. But life doesn't get any easier as Paul's alcohol abuse puts a strain on his marriage to Nan, and teen daughters Lauren (Linda Hamilton) and Carey get entangled in romances.

LML did some excellent work on night time soaps (I'd say Homefront was her very best offering). It's a shame that her ventures into daytime on Port Charles and Y&R were so...tepid.

I watched King's Crossing and have been trying in vain for decades to see the episodes again (as well as its predecessor Secrets Of Midland Heights) but have had no luck.  Can't even find the opening credits anywhere.  The only thing I've ever found are these few promos online.

 

Edit:  I stand corrected.  Someone posted the opening credits on youtube!

Kings Crossing debuted on a night when NBC had one of the lowest rating nights in recent network history at that time.

But it was CBS that took advantage airing Disney 'Tales of the Apple Dumpling Gang' at 8 and ranking 10th for the week (23.6/37)

And its movie 'Help Wanted Male' ranked 3rd (28.6/47)

 

NBC aired 2 specials Alice at the Palace (with Meryl Streep) 5.2/8 ranking 69th and 'Caruso Remembered' 3.3/5 70th and lowest ranked for the week.

 

In the middle was the 90 min Kings Crossing premiere on ABC 17.1/27 and a 90 min Fantasy Island rpt 16.3/27

 

So not a bad sampling but viewers were not interested and the ratings fell each week.

ABC had a history of poor performance in that timeslot despite Love Boat and Fantasy Island dominating the 9 and 10pm timeslots.

They had better luck with Kings Crossings replacement TJ Hooker.

Yeah, the opening on YT is as good as it gets.  I loved this series and hate it was short lived.  Can't find it anywhere :(

Unfortunately, I didn't never watch it, I was too young and I don't think it was broadcasted in France.

Yes, there is just the theme music :

Daniel Zippi was soooooo cute.

 

That's all. :)

 

Speaking of Daniel, you probably already know this, but he's on Instagram. He still looks good, just older. He posted a cast photo for Midland Heights a few months ago.

If any of you know how to communicate on Instagram maybe we can get him to do an interview.
