Marlo Thomas is back on television.

Don’t recognize the name? She starred in “That Girl,” a TV series that ran from 1966 to 1971.

She’ll introduce her clothing and accessories collection, called That Woman, during a segment from 8 to 10 p.m. tonight on HSN and will appear several times throughout the year to present new lines.

On “That Girl,” Thomas was a bit of a fashionista, wearing miniskirts and fishnet stockings, clothing favored by models Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton. When developing the line, Thomas reviewed the series’ archives to see how one of her favorite dresses could be fine tuned for 2017.

In a WWD story, she said it takes guts to wear something you wore 40 years ago and say, “How do I look in it now?”

 Thomas had been approached to do a clothing collection before, but always refused. This time she was inspired because, like a lot of women her age, she wasn’t finding suitable clothing in the stores.

“Sometimes when I’m out shopping, I look at things that have bare midriffs, and I think, ‘Is anybody thinking about me?’” she told WWD. She said she prefers clothing that’s simple, sophisticated and ladylike. “That’s what my wardrobe looks like, kind of always has.”

The “That Woman” line includes dresses, skirts, pants, tops, pants, dusters, jewelry and tote. Prices range from $39.90 for a choker to $89.90 for a color block dress to $169.90 for a perforated moto jacket. Sizes range from XS to 3X.
