LUCY LEE FLIPPIN ON FLO

Flo15PROJECT: Flo GENRE: Spinoff Sit Com YEAR: 1980-1981 TALENT: Lucy Lee Flippin KNOWN FOR: Little House on the Prairie OTHER PROJECTS: Police Academy 5, Annie Hall, Slapshot, Flashdance, A Perfect World CHARACTER: Fran Castleberry POSITION: Fran is the little… though quite tall… sister of Flo Casteberry, the iconic gum-smacking waitress from the situation comedy Alice starring Linda Lavin and stolen completely by character-actress Polly Holliday, who, probably because of Lavin’s competitive envy, wound up in this, Flo, Polly’s very own spinoff series centering on the beehive waitress returning to her roots in Texas, running a bar called The Yellow Rose with some great character actors including Geoffrey Lewis as a bartender, Sudie Bond as Flo’s mother and our featured player, Lucy Lee Flippin as Flo’s uptight, goody-good sister. CLOSURE: In one of the best episodes, Fran winds up waitressing at the Yellow Rose, and doesn’t know how to click with the truck drivers, many of whom are drinking beer to avoid their wives. EXCLUSIVE MEDIA: Lucy Lee Flippin: “The producers really mishandled Flo, it debuted with fabulous ratings… loved working with everyone but Sudie and Polly did not mesh well.”
