An all-day marathon of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” has been scheduled for this weekend, following the death Wednesday of the show’s iconic star at age 80.
SundanceTV announced plans for the programming event, which will run Saturday, Jan. 28, starting at 6 a.m. ET (5 a.m. CT) on the SundanceTV channel.
“Created by James L. Brooks and Allan Burns, ‘The Mary Tyler Moore Show,’ which one critic called ‘the best of its kind in television history’ when it debuted on September 19, 1970, is one of the most acclaimed and lauded series of all time and was honored with numerous awards including three Golden Globes, 29 Emmys and a Peabody Award,” SundanceTV notes in its announcement.
“The series’ depiction of a single, career-minded woman was revolutionary for its time and was included on many ‘best of’ lists including Time’s 17 Shows That Changed TV calling the program ‘liberated TV for adults — of both sexes’ by being ‘a sophisticated show about grownups among other grownups, having grownup conversations,’” the announcement adds.
The series ran for seven seasons from 1970-1977.
