That Girl is an American television sitcom that aired from 1966 to 1971. The show was created by Bill Persky and Sam Denoff, and starred Marlo Thomas as Ann Marie, a young woman with dreams of becoming an actress in New York City. The show follows Ann Marie's adventures as she tries to make it in the entertainment industry while navigating her personal life. She lives in an apartment with her boyfriend, Donald Hollinger, played by Ted Bessell, who is a writer for the magazine "Newsview". Ann Marie's parents, played by Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp, are also frequently featured in the show.

One of the unique things about That Girl is that it was one of the first shows to feature a single, working woman as the main character. Ann Marie is portrayed as ambitious, independent, and determined to succeed on her own terms.

Another notable aspect of the show is its opening sequence, which features Ann Marie skipping through the streets of New York City set to a catchy theme song sung by Thomas herself. The song became a hit and is still associated with the show today.

Throughout its run, That Girl tackled various social issues relevant to the time period, such as women's liberation, race relations, and the Vietnam War. However, the show is best remembered for its light-hearted, comedic tone and for Thomas' charming portrayal of Ann Marie.

The supporting cast of That Girl was also integral to the show's success. Bessell's portrayal of Donald Hollinger was well-received by audiences, and his comedic timing paired well with Thomas' energy. Lew Parker and Rosemary DeCamp brought a warmth and familiarity to the role of Ann Marie's parents, and Bernie Kopell added humor as Jerry, the womanizing neighbor.

Throughout its five seasons, That Girl remained popular with audiences and was critically acclaimed. It received numerous award nominations and wins, including two Emmy nominations for Thomas' performance.

Overall, That Girl is a beloved classic sitcom that broke ground by featuring a strong and independent female lead. Its themes and humor continue to resonate with audiences today, making it a timeless favorite.

That Girl is a series that is currently running and has 5 seasons (136 episodes). The series first aired on September 8, 1966.
