Picks and Pans Review: Danielle Steel's "heartbeat"

UPDATED 02/08/1993 at 01:00 AM EST Originally published 02/08/1993 at 01:00 AM EST

NBC (Man., Feb. 8, 9 p.m. ET)


Polly Draper plays an L.A. TV-news producer (although she seems to work about three hours a week). When she gets pregnant, her childhating ad-exec husband (Kevin Kilner) leaves her flat. At the height of her despair, along comes a soap opera producer (John Ritter) who is a veritable walking dairy when it comes to the milk of human kindness.

Though this sour-and-sweet romantic melodrama is a typically soggy piece of Hull horn Steel, it is well cast. No one is as suited to this type of schmaltz as Ritter.
