Party of Five was an American television series that aired for the first time on September 12, 1994 and ended on May 3, 2000 after six seasons.
The show, a drama aimed at the teenage market and set in San Francisco, centered on five brothers and sisters who grow up orphans after their parents were killed by a drunk driver in a road accident. Before becoming a hit, it dodged cancellation due to disappointing ratings for the early episodes.
The general guideline was to approach the hardships that an average citizen could face in Western society (in this case, the average U.S. middle-class). The Salingers were not really average, however, since the show had them face arguably every single difficulty possible. Over the show's six-year run, the family had to deal with a variety of themes such as alcoholism, domestic violence, date rape, gambling problems, and post-traumatic stress.
Several of the key cast members, including Jennifer Love Hewitt and Neve Campbell, went on to carve out careers in Hollywood during and after the series. Matthew Fox went on to star in the 2004 ABC primetime hit drama Lost.
The show was produced by Columbia Pictures Television, High Productions and Keyser/Lippman Productions and distributed by Columbia TriStar Domestic Television and the Fox Network, which aired the show in the U.S. Reruns of the show are distributed by Sony Pictures Television.
The show was also followed by a spinoff titled Time Of Your Life.
The first season, consisting of 22 episodes, was released in May 2004 on Region 1 DVD from Columbia TriStar Home Entertainment.
