TV Shows - Love Sidney
Love, Sidney is an American situation comedy television series about a gay man, Sidney Shorr, and his relationship with a single mother and her five year old daughter whom he invites to live with him. The NBC series stars Tony Randall as Sidney, Swoosie Kurtz as Laurie Morgan and Kaleena Kiff as her daughter Patti.
Love, Sidney originated with a two hour pilot episode which aired as a television movie on October 5, 1981, followed by its regular run as a weekly series from October 28, 1981 until June 6, 1983. The series was the first on American television to feature a gay character as the central lead, although for the series Sidney's homosexuality was almost entirely downplayed from its subtle yet unmistakable presence in the pilot.
With the debut of the series the character of Laurie Morgan became part of the regular cast (now played by Swoosie Kurtz). She had returned to New York when her marriage in California didn't work out. Now Sidney, Laurie and Patti were all living under the same roof again, still in Sidney's Manhattan apartment.
