Emmys rarely recognize network shows in a major way nowadays, but ''Zoey's'' was a rare musical drama with lotsa theater talents.
Jane Levy starred as Zoey. Her cast (with Broadway credits) included: Skylar Astin, Mary Steenburgen, Peter Gallagher, Andrew Leeds & Alex Newell.
''Zoey's'' was created by Austin Winsberg, who wrote the book to the 2013 Broadway musical ''First Date,'' starring Zachary Levi.
Spoiler ahead: Season 1 closed with a tour de force number. It focused on the family's wake for a notable character, set to Don McLean's ''American Pie.'' The lyrics were apportioned, so various characters voiced their sentiments, and was filmed as one extraordinary, 7-minute tracking shot.
