More > net—the classified ads in the back of local newspapers. In response, writer Ken Ludden was the one chosen to fulfill the assignment. When the assignment first came to write Mary Go-Round, there was no way to anticipate its ultimate success. Neither editor nor the writer had any notion how timely this drama would be, nor that it would touch at the centerpiece of LGBT lives for time to come. Out of the original weekly story (which ran ultimately for 54 consecutive weeks and then was syndicated to other magazines for the next 14 years) came a novel, a 20-hour screen play for an epic television series, a script for a one act play and the script for the pilot series.< Less
