The show, which first aired in 1996, came after a long and successful acting career, in which she was awarded eleven Emmys. Seven of those Emmys she earned for her representation of Marie, who Roberts modeled to emulate Romano's Italian mother and producer Phil Rosenthal's mother who was of Jewish descent, the Jewish Virtual Library cited her as saying.

Doris is also remembered for her charitable works, which included animal rights advocacy as well as as chairing of the Children with AIDS Foundation.
