Married… With Children debut on FOX 35 years ago.
Married… With Children the influential TV shows in pop culture is coming back after 35 years. Deadline is reporting that Family Guy executive producer Alex Carter is shopping around the animated series. Returning for the series is Katey Sagal, Ed O’Neill, Christina Applegate and David Faustino .
Married… With Children was filled with offbeat humor and unflinching honesty. It was a more realistic view of the middle-class experience. It followed Al Bundy (Ed O’Neill), a shoe salesman. He is fond of frequently reliving his doubtful 15 seconds of fame on the football field. Al is not a fan of the all-too-frequent amorous advances of his ditsy wife Peggy (Katey Sagal). She spends most of Al’s wages at the salon and the mall. They have two teenagers. They are stunning but superficial party animal Kelly (Christina Applegate) and egocentric Bud (David Faustino). Married for 16 semi-blissful years, Peggy and Al have found that the secret to a happy marriage is to accept one another’s quirks.
