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.
