Because my parochial grade school is closing down this summer after 102 years in operation, I thought I'd take a look at a TV show about another Catholic grade school in the 1960s.
From Wikipedia:'State of Grace' is an American comedy-drama series that ran for two seasons on the Fox Family channel during 2001 and 2002.
The show is centered on two 12-year-old girls from very different backgrounds, Hannah and Grace, who are best friends. Hannah is from a middle class Jewish family and lives with her parents, her grandmother, and her uncle. Her parents are the owners of a furniture factory in the fictitious town of Ashmore, North Carolina, where they have recently moved to from Chicago. Grace is from a wealthy Catholic family and lives with her mother, a socialite. Typically, they are depicted as more intelligent, thoughtful, funny, and rebellious than other children of their age. Set in 1965, the show was compared by some to another look-back-through-the-years show, The Wonder Years. Fred Savage, the star of that hit ABC series, even appeared in the series' final episode.
The theme song is the original version of "Do You Believe in Magic" by The Lovin' Spoonful. The show was taped at Ren-Mar Studios stage 4.
