Peyton Place

1964 NR

This primetime soap opera, based on Grace Metalious's novel, garnered much attention after its 1964 debut for its steamy themes, set in a small New England town whose residents harbor dark secrets and experience love, lust, betrayal and heartbreak. The show launched the careers of Ryan O'Neal and Mia Farrow, and after a five-year run on ABC spawned a less successful daytime soap, which aired on NBC starting in 1972.
