Sharon Gless in The Trials of Rosie O'Neal (1990)

Obscurity factor: 9

After the phenomenal success of Cagney & Lacey, Sharon Gless was in a good position to pick her projects. She chose this 1 hour dramatic series about a Los Angeles lawyer. Rosie works in the public defender's office and is working through her feelings about her divorce from another lawyer. Each episode begins with her weekly appointment with a psychologist (producer and soon to be husband Barney Rosenzweig). Each week she would tackle a problem in her personal or professional life that would make you feel as well as think.

The series lasted only two seasons, and hasn't been released on DVD, but had some high profile guest stars, including Robert Wagner and Tyne Dailey (pictured above) who played a high school rival of Rosie's. The episode is available on YouTube, though embedding has been disabled. Click the link to view part one.
