About the Show

That '70s Show is an American television period sitcom created by Bonnie Turner, Terry Turner and Mark Brazill that centres on the lives of a group of teenage friends living in the fictional suburban town of Point Place, Wisconsin, from 1976 to 1979.

The show addresses social issues of the 1970s such as feminism, sexual attitudes, generational conflict, the economic hardships of the 1970s recession, mistrust of the American government by blue-collar workers and teenage drug use.

The series aired in the USA on Fox from 23 August, 1998 to 18 May, 2006. There are 200 half-hour episodes in eight seasons.

That '70s Show originally aired in South Africa on M-Net, ending its run on Monday 14 August, 2006. The series later aired on DStv's Comedy Central channel.

Synopsis

Too cool for the Wisconsin suburbs where he lives under the authority of his parents - Red (Kurtwood Smith) and Kitty (Debra Jo Rupp) - 18-year-old Eric Forman (Topher Grace) yearns for his independence.

But rites of passage aren't all that easy at a time when jumpsuits and platforms are the epitome of cool. Just ask Eric's ex-girlfriend and next door neighbour, Donna (Laura Prepon), a knock-out who's been forced to deal with her parents' recent split and her dad Bob's (Don Stark) new life as a swinging single.

His friends - Hyde (Danny Masterson), Jackie (Mila Kunis), Kelso (Ashton Kutcher) and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) - help him through adolescence and young adulthood by providing a safe place for him to just talk and smoke some weed.

That '70s Show is set in the time of Star Wars, Led Zeppelin, post-vietnam blues and brown furniture.

The nostalgic series comes from producers Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner (Roseanne, The Cosby Show) and creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner (3rd Rock from the Sun, Wayne's World, Tommy Boy, The Brady Bunch Movie), with fellow 3rd Rock producer Mark Brazill.
