Something About Amelia


2h 1984

Brief Synopsis

Controversial, highly publicized drama about incest, spotlighted at the time as TV's "last taboo," with Ted Danson -- as far from his "Cheers" character of Sam Malone as imaginable -- playing the father accused by his teenage daughter of having sex with her. Original, more exploitive title was "Daddy's Little Girl." Emmy Award nominations included Outstanding Drama Special, actor, actress, supporting actress (Zal), director, writer, composer and film editor.
