Book Beginnings: Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted

Book Beginnings on Friday is a meme hosted by Gilion at Rose City Reader. Anyone can participate; just share the opening sentence of your current read, making sure that you include the title and author so others know what you're reading.

Mary and Lou and Rhoda and Ted: And all the Brilliant Minds Who Made The Mary Tyler Moore Show a Classic by Jennifer Keishin Armstrong

"Treva Silverman had always wanted to be the beautiful, funny, smart heroine of a 1930s screwball comedy."

Instead, she helped create and wrote more episodes than anyone else of The Mary Tyler Moore Show, a natural successor to those 1930s screwball comedies, and along the way helped recreate TV sitcoms forever, and broke a lot of barriers for women.
