1 9 7 0 – 1 9 7 6 (USA)
This NBC daytime soap was a spinoff from Another World – in fact, it was originally called Another World: Somerset and even shared the theme music with that show.
The early shows initially concerned the lives of four characters from Another World– Missy Matthews, Lahome Vane Lucas, Ricky Matthews and Sam Lucas, all living in the town of Somerset where Sam Lucas was a lawyer working in partnership with Ben Grant.
Pretty quickly though the format of the show changed to a mystery/crime theme with regular murders and criminal activity (even though Somerset had only 25,000 people living in it – it seems they were all crooked!).
