TV Show Plot For 9 to 5

Rita Moreno plays Violet, Valerie Curtin plays the shy Judy (taking over the Jane Fonda movie role) and Rachel Dennison plays Doralee (taking over the role her sister Dolly Parton played in the 9 to 5 movie.)

The first season of Nine to Five was a six-episode trial series in the spring of 1982. When it returned to TV later in the fall of 1982, Peter Bonerz had replaced Tambor as Mr. Hart. Jean Marsh played the role of the office manager.

The show was renewed again for a third season in the fall of 1983. James Komack of "Welcome Back Kotter" fame came in to produce. Valerie Curtin was removed from the show, and replaced by Leah Ayres as a totally new character.

The third season of 9 to 5 was shot on videotape as opposed to film, and the secretaries were now also roommates. ABC cancelled this version of the 9 to 5 series just a few episodes.
