Kate McShane may have been a flop, pulled off the air after only nine episodes, but it left a small mark in television history. It was the first prime time network drama in which the main character was a female lawyer. Anne Meara starred as the title character. At least one episode was left unaired after CBS pulled the plug, possibly two.

A pilot telefilm for the series aired in May 1975.

This particular ad is from the Western New England Edition of TV Guide. Channel 3 was WFSB-TV in Hartford, CT.
