THE COMPLETE "MARRIED: WITH CHILDREN" BOOK: TV'S DYSFUNCTIONAL FAMILY PHENOMENON (HARDCOVER EDITION) by Denise Noe
Married . . . with Children premiered on Fox TV in 1987 and updated the Don Ameche and Frances Langford radio comedy series, The Bickersons, and Jackie Gleason's TV classic, The Honeymooners, with a raunchy,cutting-edge slant that focused on a lovable yet laughable family headed by endearingly flawed Al (Ed O'Neill), his housework-hating wife, sexy daughter, and randy son. For 11 seasons, the brilliant team of talent put the funk in dysfunctional.
Rediscover the exhilarating humor and intellectual excitement in Denise Noe’s first book. She delves behind-the-scenes with Michael Moye, Ron Leavitt, Ed O’Neill, Katey Sagal, Christina Applegate, David Faustino, David Garrison, Amanda Bearse, E.E. Bell, and Ritch Shydner.
You’ll be fascinated by the story of how two rogue writers created a deliberately off-the-wall program; how it almost got derailed before production began; how a controversy could have plucked the series off the air but ended up injecting a much needed shot in the arm; how a reality-based show occasionally—and courageously—ventured into comedy with a fantasy, horror, and/or science fiction spin.

Book Review from GARY ROEN's BOOKSHELF:
Some have never liked the show Married With Children while others say too bad, its funny. "The Complete Married With Children Book" takes readers through the world of a sitcom that broke all established norms, that helped launch the struggling Fox network. Exposed are things like how many pilots were done, casting calls, who originally played different roles guest stars, where some of the characters names came from and of course the woman who in the fourth season instigated a campaign against the floundering show that instigated its popularity for seven more seasons. "The Complete Married With Children Book" propels readers along to learn so many unknown facts no fan should be without.
