Friends is a short-lived kids-oriented drama that aired in the spring of 1979. The series, which was produced by Aaron Spelling and aired on ABC, starred Charlie Aiken, Jill Whelan, and Jarrod Johnson as Pete Richards; Nancy Wilks and Randy Summerfield, three Southern Californian 11-year-olds. Karen Morrow also appeared as Pete's mother, Pamela. Only five one-hour episodes were produced before the series was cancelled.

Of all three of the young leads, Jill Whelan (Nancy Wilks) went on to the most success, for she would later join the cast of The Love Boat playing Vicki Stubing, the daughter of the ship's captain (played by Gavin McLeod).
