Safe At Home (TV series)

Safe At Home (TV series)

"Safe At Home" was an American comedy show airing in the mid to late 1980s on the then Superstation WTBS.

Initially, the show focused on Caroline Ford, a young woman who moves away from her mom and dad to join her older brother in Chicago. Martha Nix originally played Caroline for season 1 and was replaced by Katherine Britton. Her brother Dan Ford, played by Michael J Cutt, worked as a sports anchor for a news broadcast along with his on-air sidekick, Tatum McCoy (played by Jeanna Michaels). In later episodes, they developed a relationship and eventually married. In fact, the series began focusing more on their relationship.

Michael J Cutt originally did not get top billing in the series credits, however when they replaced the character of Caroline, he became the star of the show. Other cast changes were made throughout the series run. Besides changing the lead actress in the series after the first season, Gary Hudson originally played Dan's friend Roger. He left the series shortly after and was replaced by Vic Dunlop who played Dokey in season 2. Vic Dunlop left the following season and although both Vic and Gary were mentioned from time to time, they were never seen again.

Richard Steven Horvitz played Gary, who was the nephew of the stations owner where the newscast took place. He worked for the newscast. He left midway through the series final season. James Coburn was added to the cast during the final season as Caroline's love interest.

One other notable cast member was Brenda Lynn Klemme, who played Amy. She was the ditzy best friend of Caroline.

The show ended around the same time as WTBS' two other original comedies, Down To Earth & Rocky Road.
