Kathy Coleman starred in the hit 1970s show ''Land of the Lost.'' Kathy grew up fatherless in Southern California in the 1960s as the last child in a family of ten children. Her bright smile and blonde curls got her into television commercials at a very young age, and by the time she was 10 she was touring the country and recording as the youngest member of a popular musical group.
Kathy played the role of ''Holly'' on the 1974-1977 NBC Saturday morning series produced by H.R. Pufnstuf creators Sid and Marty Krofft, featuring state-of-the-art special effects and written by some of the biggest names in literary science fiction.
''Land of the Lost'' was known for its intelligent scripts and original concepts - from an alternate universe inhabited by dinosaurs, to primate-like Pakuni and lizard creature Sleestaks to dimension-hopping Pylons. It became the most successful Saturday morning program of the decade. When it finished its network run, the show went directly into syndicated reruns that continue to this day. It is this show for which Kathy is most remembered.
The title of Kathy's new book - ''Run, Holly, Run!''- is taken from the oft-repeated instructions of her TV brother, Will, played by Wesley Eure.
''Run, Holly, Run!'' details the making of ''Land of the Lost'' and how the series gave Kathy fame, fun, lifelong friendships, and a positive father figure. Learn what happened with Kathy after the series ended!
