Status: Partially Found

13 Queens Boulevard is a 1979 ABC sitcom created by Richard Baer and developed by Bud Yorkin, Bernie Orenstien, and Saul Turtletaub (from What's Happening!!).

The show debuted on March 20, in the time slot that usually occupied Taxi, and then aired four more episodes opposite The Ropers before it was cancelled (three more were aired over the summer, but one episode, "The Lift", remains unaired).

Plot

The plot revolves around a group of people living in an apartment complex on 13 Queens Boulevard, Queens NY. The main characters were Felicia and Steve Winters (Eileen Brennan and Jerry Van Dyke respectively), Felicia's best friend and the recently divorced Elaine Dowling (Marcia Rodd), Mildred Capestro (Helen Page Camp), and her two daughters Annie and Jill (Susan Elliot and Louise Williams respectively).[1]

Status

The show has been never re-aired since its initial airing. Originally, only two videos, containing variations of the intro and about 5 minutes of footage of the premiere, in addition to a few publicity stills existed. However, as of May 27, 2018, four full episodes (including the premiere) have surfaced.
