On Thursday evening, January 11, 1973 at 9:00 p.m., American television viewers stepped into the home of the William C. Loud family of Santa Barbara, California, in the groundbreaking WNET documentary series "An American Family." Chronicling the lives of its seven members, the television series made parents Pat and Bill Loud and their five children instant celebrities. Over twelve episodes, viewers watched dramatic life events unfold during the seven months the family lived in front of the camera - including Pat asking for a separation from Bill, and the bohemian New York life of their gay son Lance. Now, 40 years since filming, WNET has brought all 12 hours of "An American Family" out of its archives and, working with the original filmmakers, edited them into this 2-hour feature-length special capturing the most memorable and compelling moments of the landmark series. See for yourself why "An American Family" is one of the 50 Greatest TV Shows of All Time (TV Guide, 2002).
