About FLO

Polly Holliday left "ALICE" in the middle of it's fourth season (to be replaced by Diane Ladd) to star in her own show, where Flo moves to Texas. The series ran from March 24, 1980 to July 21, 1981. 29 episodes aired, though it is unkown whether more episodes where produced and filmed. However, it is highly likely that all filmed episodes were aired.

Florence Jean Castleberry leaves Mel's Diner and Phoenix, thinking she is going to become a restaurant hostess in Houston. Along the way, Flo stops in her hometown of Cowtown, Texas. There, she decides to stay in Cowtown with her mother, "Mama," sister Fran, and best friend Miriam. She decides to buy a run-down restaurant and liven it up. She renames the restaurant Flo's Yellow Rose. Her bartender, Earl, is sexist, and Les is Flo's piano player. Frequent customers include Farley Walters of a nearby bank, Randy, of a local garage, and Chester. Rounding out the characters is Fran's fiance, Randy. "Flo" was somewhat successful in the spring of 1980, but when it returned in the fall, ratings became quite mediocre.
