"Knots Landing" ranks as the most successful spinoff in television history. Back in 1979, when "Dallas" was king of TV, CBS created an offshoot by moving Gary Ewing (Ted Shackelford) westward to.a suburban enclave that proved to harbor just as much human frailty. On Wednesday and Friday, CBS reunites the old gang on "Knots Landing: Back to the Cul-de-sac." The plot reads like a whole season of a soap opera, with everything that tantalized viewers for 14 seasons. The returnees include Shackelford, Michele Lee, William Devane, Kevin Dobson, Donna Mills, Joan Van Ark, Stacy Galina, Brian Austin Green and Michelle Phillips. "When we did our last episode," Lee recalls, "I kind of wrote it off. It was something that I had to get over — many, many years with people I cared about and had so much fun with. "It was like going on to another phase of my life. I guess I discounted 'Knots' coming back. It was very surprising. When we got back on the set, it struck us all how easy it was to do. It was as if we hadn't left. "You know the saying, 'You can't go home again.' It was a strange kind of experience where we could. But we were all a little bit different, personally. It was only three and a half years. But still, many of us had done other things in our careers." Aside from making her rich, "Knots Landing" gave Lee the chance to break in as a director; in the last three seasons, she directed 11 shows. Realizing that most actresses can thrive only by creating their own projects, she has produced and starred in five TV movies, including "Single Women, Married Men" and "When No One Would Listen," which co-starred her former husband, James Farentino (they have a son, David). Today, Lee and her husband, TV producer Fred Rappaport, live in the Westwood house she bought 27 years ago. Built in the 1920s when the Spanish style reigned in Los Angeles, the lot slopes down to a wooded glade that shuts out the city. A native Angeleno, Lee grew up around the studios, where her father worked as a makeup artist. She has done just about everything in show business, starting right out of The Associated Press Actress Michele Lee Is among those starring in "Knots Landing: Back to the Cul- de-sac," which airs at 8 p.m. Wednesday and Friday on CBS. high school with a local review, "Vintage '60," which David Merrick took to Broadway. She starred with Robert Morse in "How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying," then repeated in the film version. TV variety specials, records, supper clubs, Las Vegas, movies ("The Love Bug," "The Comic"), TV dramas — she's done it all. And, of course, "Knots Landing." Could the reunion become an annual affair? "Could be," she mused. "I will tell you this: We have this incredible audience out there. With every series, there's a little bit of erosion after five years. We were on for 14. "We weren't really taken off the air. It was by mutual discussion. We were, at that time, getting a higher rating than anybody gets on television today. We 'eroded' to about a 22 share (of sets in use), which is considered a huge hit today. "We still ge* so much correspondence, and so many people will come up on the street with an enthusiasm for 'Knots Landing.' Also, when it's played in syndication, it gets big numbers."
