The series aired for one season (1963–64) and was shown Monday nights on CBS.Set in New York City, the show explored issues of urban life, some of them grim. Though it won critical praise, it also generated some controversy. TV Guide ranked it #6 on their 2013 list of 60 shows that were "Cancelled Too Soon"An upwardly mobile black family moves into a previously all-white neighborhood in suburban Long Island, New York. Chuck and Anne Severson, who are Neil's friends, at first welcome them to the neighborhood, even though some of their friends and neighbors don't want the black family there. However, when local real estate agents start "blockbusting"--the practice of scaring white homeowners into selling their homes for less than they're worth by raising the prospect of more blacks moving into the neighborhood and lowering property values, then selling the homes at vastly inflated prices to those same black families--Chuck and Anne must decide whether their stand against racism is worth losing the investment they have in their home. - IMDb.comOriginally uploaded to archive.orgShared for historical purposes.
