  • Episode writer David McFadzean talks about creating Home Improvement, his theatre, and being hired for Roseanne.
The next year, McFadzean’s former college roommate and now co-producer, Matt Williams, who had seen independent productions of two plays McFadzean premiered at Lamb’s—“Oklahoma Rigs” at the Kennedy Center and “Deep River” in New York—called to tell him he was writing a pilot and would like him to take a look at it.

The pilot was the fabulously successful “Roseanne,” and despite McFadzean’s lack of television experience, he was the first person Williams hired for his staff. A year later, they formed Wind Dancer Productions along with writer Carmen Finestra.

  • If Crystal was making minimum wage in Illinois in 1989, she was making $3.35/hr, grossing $134 dollars a week. This slip would be about a third of her paycheck for the week. Pretty steep for a single mom.
 We think Crystal is wearing a cardigan with a ring or bracelet motif. It's aspirational--she wants to be part of a couple.
