Winner of an Emmy(R) for best dramatic series in 1988, "Thirtysomething" was a new kind of hour-long drama when it premiered in 1987. For its four seasons on the air, it focused on the domestic and professional lives of a group of young urban professionals (Yuppies) at the height of the Reagan years; a circle of friends living in Philadelphia. Michael Steadman, an advertising copywriter struggling with the claims of his liberal Jewish background, and his wife Hope, a part-time social worker and full-time mother are the "settled" couple. The Steadmans were offset against Elliot, a not-really-grown-up graphic artist who was Michael's best friend at Penn, and his long-suffering wife Nancy, an illustrator who separated from him and developed breast cancer in subsequent seasons. Three unmarried friends also date back from college days: Ellyn is a career executive in city government; Gary teaches English at a liberal arts college; and Melissa, a freelance photographer, is Michael's cousin.
