The same as the pilot show, but this is a reproduction of that script, with Ronald and Bonita Coleman to kick off the series.
Ivy is a typical small college that might be located any where in America. Today the board of regents meets to debate whether Mr Hall should be reappointed as president.
In the home of the Halls, we find them nervously awaiting the decision. We catch a glimpse of the personalities of Dr and Mrs Hall through their casual conversation. Mr Hall is capable enough, and we see a little of the popularity that Mrs Hall has among students. Especially when she tutors one in the art of dancing. Both are passionate in their own ways to the school, and the students.
Flashback mode kicks in, and we learn how the Halls met. He was on sabatical to England, and fell in love with an actress on the stage. After the introduction to the background of the Halls, and discovering how college presidents feel about their stodgy fellow faculty leaders, the tension and frustrations of the wait are over.
