(ABC, 1/2/1978, 120 mins). A drama about a woman (Lee Remick) who faces a harrowing fight to rediscover her personal identity when her husband of 15 years announces that he is leaving her and their children to search for the indefinable joy he feels he is missing from his life. Subsequently a one-hour pilot called “Tom and JoAnn” was aired (with Elizabeth Ashley and Joel Fabiani) to test the waters for a prospective series. Emmy Award nominations went to director Delbert Mann and to Loring Mandel for his teleplay.
