Watch Alice (1976)

Alice is a recent widow with a young son on her way to Los Angeles when her car breaks down in Phoenix, Arizona. She winds up getting a job at Mel's Diner and muddling through while her son grows up. When he is older, she again resumes pursuit of her own dreams. Most of the series is about life for Alice and her working class friends and coworkers. The series brings up issues often experienced by single working women, whether they are mothers or not, and has a compassionate view of individuals who are stuck in such a situation. Alice often provided the down to earth wisdom needed in the situation while her coworkers often provided the wit, sass and smart-aleck remarks.

In addition to Alice and her son, she has a few female coworkers, notably Flo and Vera, and a cranky boss who owns the diner. In spite of being of limited means, Flo is an empowered, opinionated woman who knows how to get her own needs met. Vera is a lovable, very sweet lady but something of a ditz. She means well but doesn't always have the best ideas. Nonetheless, they help Alice make it through every day.
