Chronicling the many complex problems of growing up in the world today, the young adults on 7th Heaven
are exposed to issues ranging from dating crises to teen suicide, sibling rivalry to gang violence. Storylines touched on such topics as the Holocaust, hate crimes, violence in schools, drug use, vandalism, drinking and driving, teen pregnancy and homelessness. The series has received numerous awards, including honors from the Parents Television Council, The Media Project's Shine Awards, Entertainment Industries Council's Prism Awards, Viewers Voice, Anti-Defamation League, Film Advisory Board, the Academy of Religious Broadcasting, Kids Choice Awards, Teen Choice Awards and the TV Guide Awards.
Now in its sixth season, 7th Heaven stars Emmy Award-nominated Stephen Collins (The Two Mrs. Grenvilles, The First Wives Club, Sisters), Catherine Hicks (Peggy Sue Got Married, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home), Barry Watson (Teaching Mrs. Tingle, Sorority Boys), David Gallagher (Phenomenon), Jessica Biel (Summer Catch, Ulee's Gold), Beverley Mitchell (Phenom) Mackenzie Rosman and Adam LaVorgna (Brooklyn Bridge).
This season, the Camden family is going through major changes. Mary (Biel), Eric (Collins) and Annie's (Hicks) oldest daughter, is still living with Eric's parents in Buffalo, working at a homeless shelter and considering a more serious commitment to her future, such as a career in public service. Of course, her parents just wish she would move on from her soul searching and enroll in college. The oldest, Matt (Watson), meanwhile, continues his pre-med studies while working at the local free clinic.
Back at home, Lucy (Mitchell) tries to put her life back in order after she breaks her engagement and decides not to attend college in New York. Struggling more than Eric and Annie anticipated with his passage from boyhood into adulthood, a usually well-behaved Simon (Gallagher) rebels against his parents and authority figures, while Ruthie (Rosman) begins her prepubescent drama and the twins exhaust the remaining energy of the family. Robbie (LaVorgna), Mary's ex-boyfriend who joined the Camden fold last season, has become a big brother to Lucy, Simon and Ruthie while he's living under the Camden family roof.
With seven children ranging in age from early twenties to toddlers, parents Eric and Annie are constantly trying to keep up with all of life's changes. As minister in the fictional suburban town of Glen Oak, California, Eric has his hands full juggling his own family crises and helping members of the community. Adding to Eric's balancing act, Annie questions her role as a wife and mother and attempts to redefine who she is by pursuing a career. They have little time for themselves, but they still manage to keep their romance alive. Together, they're ready to face any challenge that comes their way on the roller coaster ride known as parenting.
7th Heaven was created by Brenda Hampton (Mad About You, Blossom) who also serves as executive producer along with Aaron Spelling and E. Duke Vincent. Spelling and Vincent are also executive producers of The WB's Charmed, produced by Spelling Television, Inc., a Paramount/Viacom company.
