Another World is an American television soap opera that aired on NBC from May 4, 1964, to June 25, 1999. It was created by Irna Phillips along with William J. Bell, was produced by Procter & Gamble Productions at NBC Studios, 1268 East 14th Street in Brooklyn. Set in the fictional town of Bay City, the series opened with announcer Bill Wolff intoning its epigram, "We do not live in this world alone, but in a thousand other worlds," which Phillips said represented the difference between "the world of events we live in, the world of feelings and dreams that we strive for." Another World focused less on the conventional drama of domestic life as seen in other soap operas, more on exotic melodrama between families of different classes and philosophies. In 1964, Another World was the first soap opera to talk about abortion when such subjects were taboo, it was the first soap opera to do a crossover, with the character of Mike Bauer from Guiding Light, created by Irna Phillips, coming from Springfield to Bay City.
It was the first to expand to one hour to ninety minutes, back to an hour. It was the first soap to launch two spin-offs and Texas, as well as an indirect one and Friends, which would be renamed For Richer, For Poorer. Another World was the second soap opera with a theme song to chart on the Billboard record charts, " Another World" by Crystal Gayle and Gary Morris, in 1987. On April 12, 1999, NBC announced it was canceling Another World with its final episode on the network airing on June 25, 1999. NBC replaced Another World with another soap opera, Passions, on July 5, 1999. In 1963, NBC approached PGP about Irna Phillips creating a new serial for them, she decided to base it on the concept of living not only in the real life, but living in an alternate world of hopes and desires. Attorney Mitchell Dru, a character on As the World Turns, became a character on Another World during the early years of the program. Two characters from another CBS soap, Guiding Light—attorney Mike Bauer and his daughter Hope—did cross over in 1966, remaining for a year before returning to GL.
Expectations were so high. On November 22, 1963, a group of executives met at the Young & Rubicam ad agency in New York to discuss the show's opening story, the death of William Matthews, when they heard the news of another death in Dallas: the assassination of President Kennedy. After opening with a death in the core Matthews family, Irna planned to follow up with an out-of-wedlock pregnancy, a septic abortion, a shooting, murder trial; as Allen M. Potter explained, "Irna just didn't want to take a chance on waiting for the ratings, she felt that with this kind of showy story she could build an audience more quickly." Said Tom Donovan, "In construction, Irna was attempting to follow the structure of As the World Turns. Irna would never conceive of a story not based on a family." The first episode was the aftermath of the funeral of wealthy William Matthews. His widow, did not like his working-class brother, Jim, or his family; the fights between upper-class Liz and her middle-class in-laws started the show.
As the'60s went on, the lives and loves of Jim's children, Russ and Pat, took center stage. Jim's wife, Mary intervened when there was a crisis, most of the time. There was considerable turnover in the cast during the first year of the series. Sarah Cunningham, John Beal and Fran Sharon were all replaced within the first few weeks of the show. By June, Joey Trent and Vera Allen were written out. By November, Leon Janney was replaced by Shepperd Strudwick and Roni Dengel was written out. In the first year, the show had a controversial storyline involving Pat having an illegal abortion after becoming pregnant; this was the first time. In the story, the abortion made her sterile, the shock from the news caused her to find her ex-boyfriend, Tom Baxter, shoot him in cold blood. Pat was brought to trial and acquitted, she fell in love with and married her lawyer, John Randolph. Trustman was replaced by Beverly Penberthy. Another notable early storyline revolved around the star-crossed romance of Bill Matthews and Melissa Palmer.
Liz did not consider Melissa good enough for her son and was interfering in their relationship. After many trials and hardships and Melissa were married, but their happiness was short-lived when Bill drowned in a boating accident. After a one-year run, NBC was expected to cancel the program, but instead, former soap opera actor James Lipton was hired to write the show. His ideas included bringing underused members of the Matthews family: Jim and Alice into the forefront and introducing the Gregory family. Agnes Nixon, then-head writer of Guiding Light, was hired after Lipton's departure to write for the program. In 1967, Nixon created the show's most iconic character: Rachel Davis. Rachel was raised by her single mother, who provided a good foil for Rachel. Down-to-earth Ada could sit in her kitchen on Bowman Street and be perfectly
