Synopsis by Hal Erickson
This once-timely made-for-TV drama was originally titled Lovesick: The Herpes Story until wiser heads prevailed. Soap-opera favorites Anthony Geary and Judith Light starred as dedicated doctor Kyle Richardson and lovelorn tourist Marsha Sarno in this saga of a genital-herpes outbreak in a posh resort community. Also on hand is Robert Vaughn as Dave Fairmont, the requisite evil land developer who will resort to any means necessary to keep news of the epidemic from spreading to the world. Intimate Agony made its ABC network debut on March 21, 1983.
