All in the Family creator Norman Lear takes fans behind the scenes of the groundbreaking sitcom on the occasion of its 50th anniversary. Producer, philanthropist, and activist Norman Lear has the distinction of being among the first seven television pioneers inducted into the Television Academy Hall of Fame. He won his first two Emmy® Awards in 1971 (for All in the Family’s premiere season) and his most recent one in 2020, for Live in Front of a Studio Audience: ”All In The Family” and ”Good Times.” His memoir, Even This I Get to Experience, was published in 2014.

Jim Colucci is a Los Angeles-based freelance entertainment writer whose work has appeared in such publications as TV Guide and CBS’ Watch! magazine, where he served as a Deputy Editor.  He has appeared on such shows as CNN’s History of the Sitcom, and for a decade delivered a weekly on-air entertainment report on The Frank DeCaro Show on Sirius XM radio.  His previous books include Will & Grace: Fabulously Uncensored, The Q Guide to The Golden Girls and the New York Times best-seller Golden Girls Forever.

Television was changed forever in 1971 with the premiere of All in the Family. Archie Bunker (Carroll O’Connor), his wife Edith (Jean Stapleton), daughter Gloria (Sally Struthers), and son-in-law Mike“Meathead” Stivic (Rob Reiner) instantly became—and half a century later still are—four of the most iconic characters in television.
