1 9 7 7 (USA)
65 x 30 minute episodes

All That Glitters followed a group of female executives working at a corporation called Globatron.

The Norman Lear production poked fun at then-contemporary soap operas and imagined a world where women and men swapped positions in society.

The women went to work and earned money while the men were sexually harassed and expected to take charge of household duties and parenting.

The series featured Barbara Baxley, Eileen Brennan, Greg Evigan, Lois Nettleton, Wes Parker, Anita Gillette, Gary Sandy, Tim Thomerson, Jessica Walter, Rhea Perlman and Danny De Vito.

Linda Gray played transgender fashion model Linda Murkland – the first transgender character on American television.

Comic actor and cartoon voice artist Chuck McCann was also a regular.

All That Glitters ran five nights a week in syndication but was short-lived. It was cancelled after a 13 week run (65 episodes) between April and July 1977.
