Somerset (NBC 1970-1976 with Bibi Besch and Ted Danson)

Published

on

USA / NBC / x30 minute episodes / Broadcast 30 March 1970 – 31 December 1976

Creator: Robert Cenedell / Executive Producers: Lyle B. Hill, Sid Sirulnick / Producer: Sid Sirulnick / Theme Music: Charles Paul / Announcer: Bill Woolf / Costume: Julia Sze, Lee Carlton / Music: Albert Elms

Somerset, a 1970’s US daytime soap was a spin off from Another World, indeed it was originally known as Another World-Somerset (it even shared the theme music with that show).

The early shows initially concerned the lives of four characters from Another World – Missy Matthews, Lahome Vane Lucas, Ricky Matthews and Sam Lucas living in the town of Somerset where Sam Lucas was a lawyer working in partnership with Ben Grant.

Pretty quickly though the format of the show changed to a mystery/crime theme with murders and criminal activity going on ( even though Somerset had only 25,000 people living in it it seems they were all crooked). During the first season, not only did Somerset use Another World’s music and announcer, it used the same “interlocking rings” visual.

A few well known faces appeared throughout it’s run including Ted Danson, Jameson Parker and Sigourney Weaver.
