Chronology: 1977

1977 marked Meryl’s professional debuts on television and film. In January, a taped version of the Phoenix Theatre production of „Secret Service“ was broadcast on PBS. Later that year, she was seen opposite Michael Moriarty in the television crime drama „The Deadliest Season“. She also added to more prestigious theatre performances to her resumé – as Dunjasha the maid in „The Cherry Orchard“ opposite Raul Julia and Irene Worth, and as Lt. Lilian Holiday in the Broadway production of „Happy End“ opposite Christopher Lloyd. Meryl Streep spent the Summer of 1977 in Austria, again with Moriarty, to film the NBC miniseries „Holocaust“. In October, she was seen on the big screen for the first time, in a bit part in Fred Zinneman’s „Julia“, opposite Jane Fonda.
