Getting Together is a musical sitcom that aired on ABC for 14 episodes between September 18th, 1971, and January 8th, 1972. It was a spin-off of The Partridge Family and was based on "A Knight in Shining Armor," the last episode of The Partridge Family's first season. It received a fair amount of promotion, including tie-in novels and comic books and an official magazine published by Tiger Beat, but it was crushed in the ratings by All in the Family, which aired in the same time slot.
The show follows the songwriting duo Bobby Conway (played by Bobby Sherman) and Lionel Poindexter (played by Wes Stern) as they try to make it in Los Angeles. Other characters include Bobby's little sister Jennifer, who moves in with the two in the first episode, Rita Simon, who was Bobby and Lionel's landlady; and Rita's boyfriend, Officer Rudy Colcheck.
The opening sequence and a few clips have made their way online. The UCLA Film & Television Archive has 13 of the 14 episodes, and most are known to exist in the hands of private collectors. However, the show has never been rerun or released on home media.
