The Days and Nights of Molly Dodd is an American comedy-drama series that aired on NBC from 1987 to 1988, and on Lifetime from 1988 to 1991. It was created by Jay Tarses and stars Blair Brown in the title role.
The show depicts the life of Molly Bickford Dodd, a divorced woman in New York City with a lifestyle that could be described as both yuppie and bohemian. Molly seems to drift from job to job and relationship to relationship. Her ex-husband, a ne'er-do-well jazz musician, still cares for her. In fact, nearly every man she meets (and the occasional woman) adores her. Her warmth and emotional accessibility are the root cause of most of Molly's problems in life.
In addition to Brown and Tarses, the cast included Allyn Ann McLerie as Molly's mother, James Greene as her building's elevator operator/doorman, William Converse-Roberts as her ex-husband Fred Dodd, and Maureen Anderman as her best friend Nina. Sandy Faison was a cast member during its run on NBC. Actors David Strathairn and Richard Lawson each appeared in about a third of the episodes (both playing characters who were romantic interests for Molly).
Major recurring roles were held by Victor Garber, Richard Venture (who played Molly's father), George Gaynes, John Pankow, and J. Smith-Cameron.
