This Child Is Mine, a 90-minute videotaped TV drama written by Richard De Roy, stars two popular soap opera performers: Rosemary Prinz (All My Children) and Robin Strasser (Another World). The scene is a courtroom, where a tense custody battle is in progress. The natural mother and foster mother of a child fight tooth and nail over possession. What starts as a standard "Day in Court" affair quickly escalates into a heart-pounding melodrama. The pilot for a never-sold series, This Child Is Mine was originally telecast December 7, 1972 as an "ABC Afternoon Playbreak."
