Sitcom. Stories of ‘single’ career girl Ellen Morgan in Los Angeles. Season one was known as These Friends of Mine and Ellen worked in a bookstore called Buy the Book. From season II the show was retitled Ellen and Ellen was now the owner of the book store. Season one episodes are repeated as Ellen and known as Ellen overseas. In a special hour long episode broadcast 30 April 1997, Ellen Morgan came out as a lesbian (as is DeGeneres in real life). In recent years Ellen has talked about how the announcement killed her career stone dead at the time.
