Room 222 first hit the airwaves on ABC in September of 1969 and ran until January, 1974. The show, set at a fictional Los Angeles High School, dealt with hot issues of the day and featured a large cast of teachers and students and offered up choice roles for a variety of guest stars.
Room 222 started out weak in the ratings but after grabbing three Emmy Awards in 1970; Best New Series; Best Supporting Actor (Michael Constantine); and Best Supporting Actress (Karen Valentine), the series took off.
Cast regulars included Lloyd Haynes as Pete Dixon, Denise Nicholas as Liz McIntyre, and David Jolliffe, Eric Laneuville and Judy Strangis (Electra Woman and Dyna Girl) as students. Guest stars included Mark Hamill, Bruno Kirby and Cindy Williams.
