'Come and Knock on Our Door ...'

TV Land Celebrates 30th Anniversary of Three's Company with a 24-Hour Marathon Beginning Saturday, March 17

NEW YORK, March 12 -- TV Land celebrates the comedic misadventures of the zaniest roommates on television -- Jack, Janet and Chrissy -- with a 24-hour marathon saluting the 30th Anniversary of the Emmy Award-winning series Three's Company beginning Saturday, March 17, at 8:00pm (all times ET/PT). Tune in to relive some of television's most hilarious and madcap episodes including a retrospective show hosted by Lucille Ball, the pilot episode recounting how it all started and the series finale. TV Land will also showcase episodes from the hit series' spin-off, The Ropers and Three's a Crowd.

Fans can log on to tvland.com beginning Friday, March 9 through Friday, March 30 to register to win a Three's Company DVD box set containing all the episodes from season eight, as well as "bloopers" and "featurettes:" "The Best of Jack, Janet, Terri, Larry and Furley," "John Ritter: Working with the Master" and "Usted Habla Three's Company?"

Three's Company aired on ABC and remained a top-ten show through its seven-year run from 1977-1984. It follows the lives of three roommates: Janet Wood (Joyce DeWitt), a young, single woman who works as a florist; Chrissy Snow (Suzanne Somers), a bubbly, blonde typist; and Jack Tripper (John Ritter), a student studying to be a chef. At first, their landlords -- Stanley (Norman Fell) and Helen (Audra Lindley) Roper -- are against the threesome sharing their apartment until Jack tricks them into thinking he's gay. The Ropers would eventually spin-off into their own show in 1979, aptly titled The Ropers, as they adventure out of the apartment complex to a townhouse in an upscale neighborhood of Cheviot Hills. It is then that Mr. Ralph Furley (Don Knotts) takes over as the owner of the not-so-swinging single's apartment. As Crissy leaves, Cindy Snow (Jennille Harrison), her cousin moves in with Jack and Janet and later, Terri Alden (Priscilla Barnes), replaces Cindy as the third roommate. At the end of the series, Jack received his own spin-off, Three's a Crowd, and moves in with girlfriend Vicky Bradford (Mary Cadorette) a flight attendant.
