Set in the era of Led Zeppelin 8-tracks, Tab colas and Farrah Fawcett posters, THAT ‘70s SHOW continues to flash back to the “Me Decade.” The nostalgic series comes from celebrated producers Marcy Carsey, Tom Werner and Caryn Mandabach (“Roseanne,” “The Cosby Show”) and wildly inventive creators Bonnie Turner and Terry Turner (“3rd Rock from the Sun,” “Wayne's World,” “Tommy Boy,” “The Brady Bunch Movie”), with fellow “3rd Rock” producer Mark Brazill.
Too cool for the Wisconsin suburbs where he lives under the authority of his parents -- RED (Kurtwood Smith) and KITTY (Debra Jo Rupp) -- 18-year-old ERIC FORMAN (Topher Grace) yearns for his independence. But rites of passage aren’t all that easy at a time when jumpsuits and platforms are the epitome of cool. Just ask Eric's ex-fiancée and next door neighbor, DONNA (Laura Prepon), a knock-out whose dad, BOB (Don Stark), has a penchant for permed hair and gold medallions. Eric and Donna get by with a little help from their friends, who spend most of their time hanging out in the Forman basement and pondering their lives, their parents and their future. The gang includes KELSO (Ashton Kutcher), a good-looking but gullible guy who longs to become an astronaut – or a male model – whichever comes first; HYDE (Danny Masterson), a conspiracy theorist who thinks Xerox will take over the world; JACKIE (Mila Kunis), a peppy cheerleader who wants to be a globe-trotting stewardess; and FEZ (Wilmer Valderrama), a foreign exchange student who’s soaking up American culture like a sponge.
