JULIA - THE (ALMOST) COMPLETE SERIES (NBC 1968-1971) VERY RARE! Diahann Carroll, Marc Copage, Lloyd Nolan, Lurene Tuttle, Michael Link, Hank Brandt, Betty Beaird
Julia, starring Diahann Carroll, focused on the story of Julia Baker, an African American woman who was raising her young son Corey (Marc Copage) alone after her husband, an O-1 Bird Dog artillery spotter pilot, was killed in the Vietnam War.
Julia moves to Los Angeles to start a new life, rents an apartment in an integrated building, and takes a job in the aerospace industry as a nurse for Dr. Morton Chegley (Lloyd Nolan) and head nurse Hannah Yarby (Lurene Tuttle).
Corey's best friend is Earl J. Waggedorn (Michael Link, “Stowaway to the Moon”). Earl lives downstairs in the same apartment building with his father Len (Hank Brandt), mother Marie (Betty Beaird) and infant brother.
Julia was considered the first weekly starring vehicle for a black woman since Beulah in the 1950s. During its three seasons run the show received critical acclaim, high ratings and Emmy nominations.
