His parents divorced while he was still in school, and soon after he graduated Spielberg moved to Los Angeles, staying initially with his father.

Based on the strength of his work, Universal signed Spielberg to do four TV films.
The first was a Richard Matheson adaptation called Duel.
Spielberg then revisited his Close Encounters project and, with financial backing from Columbia Pictures, released Close Encounters: The Special Edition in 1980.
