Decades before we had reality television, there was the Loud family. From HBO comes the story of the ground-breaking documentary, An American Family, which chronicled the lives of the Loud family in the early 1970s. The cameras put the Louds in the national spotlight as parents Pat and Bill grappled with their marriage while raising their children. Filmmaker Craig Gilbert felt the family's struggles were relatable to many Americans, but none of them could have predicted that the series would catapult them to notoriety and give birth to reality TV.
