The woman in the photo above, depicted in a scene from the second season of HBO’s The Leftovers, may not be immediately recognizable to most readers. For five years in the 1990s, however, she was the star of a popular ABC sitcom that was watched by close to 20 million viewers a week in its first two seasons. In 1998, in the midst of its fifth season, ABC cancelled the sitcom after the star’s substance abuse led to erratic onset behavior, the departure of several cast members, and falling ratings.

Her name is Brett Butler, and her sitcom was Grace Under Fire.
