One Day at a Time is an American sitcom television series that aired on the CBS network from December 16, 1975, until May 28, 1984. It starred Bonnie Franklin as a divorced mother raising two teenage daughters, played by Mackenzie Phillips and Valerie Bertinelli, in Indianapolis. It also starred Pat Harrington, Jr.

The series was created by Whitney Blake and Allan Manings, a husband-and-wife writing duo who were both actors in the 1950s and 1960s. The series was based on Whitney Blake's own life as a single mother, raising her child, future actress Meredith Baxter. Like many sitcoms developed by Lear, One Day at a Time often tackled serious issues in life and relationships, particularly those related to second wave feminism.

Stories depicting such events as weddings, births, and other important milestones frequently stretched over two-, three-, and four-part episodes. Ann Romano, a divorced mother, moves to Marion County, west-side Indianapolis, with her daughters, the rebellious Julie and the wisecracking Barbara. Ann frequently struggles with maintaining her role as mother while affording her daughters the freedom she never had as a young woman.

Complicating matters is David Kane, a younger man who lives in the building and takes a romantic interest in Ann. Dwayne Schneider, the building's quirky superintendent (most often referred to only by his last name), provides usually-unwanted advice to the tenants.
