Synopsis

A hit prime-time soap, the first of its kind, that was based on the steamy bestseller by Grace Metalious (later adapted into two movies), about the scandalous goings-on in a New England town. Quite the sensation in its time, the series boasted a cast that included star-making turns by Mia Farrow and Ryan O'Neal, and was shown twice a week for most of its run (even three times a week for a brief period). In 1972, the daytime soap 'Return to Peyton Place' picked up where this story left off.
