Late in the 1970s, the show was doing badly in the ratings, so a new executive producer, Gloria Monty, decided to move the show's focus away from the hospital and onto material more relevant to a younger audience than the stereotypical "bored housewife", thus bringing in Luke and Laura, (Anthony Geary and Genie Francis) and eventually having them marry in a stereotypical fantasy wedding that would not be matched until the real-life marriage of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.

Film (short) by Elisha Miranda Actor Although mainstream filmmakers are fond of their White saviors, most audiences of color are not. Whether it's the FBI swooping in to rescue us in Mississippi Burning or a fearless teacher storming a "ghetto" school to prove our youth can learn as in Dangerous Minds, we are often offended by such cinematic myths that are more interested in appeasing White liberal sensibilities than raising complex questions about what Whites must truly sacrifice if they are sincere about ending racial injustice. Produced by Chica Luna Productions, Corporate Dawgz is a comedic ode to White revolutionaries who understand that what they give up in privilege they gain tenfold in humanity. Written by Anonymous
