Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' series premiereThe relationship between father and daughter actors Ryan O'Neal and Tatum O'Neal has been strained at best over the past couple of decades. So estranged were they, that Ryan hit on his daughter after failing to recognize her on the day of Farrah Fawcett's funeral.

Their attempted reconciliation is at the heart of 'Ryan and Tatum: The O'Neals' (Sun., 10PM ET on OWN).

The eight-episode series premiered with Tatum, having relocated to the West Coast after nearly 25 years estranged from her father, in an attempt to reconnect. She's battled her own demons, particularly a volatile marriage to tennis pro John McEnroe and heroin addiction, but is sober now.

Tatum invited her father to her birthday party, and this time he showed up. The pair laughed and reminisced about her crazy 15th birthday bash, which saw thousands of people show up, including Brooke Shields and Michael Jackson.

That one was Tatum's favorite. As for Ryan? "My favorite birthday is tonight," he declared. "Because I've missed about 20 of Tatum's."

Will you stick through this journey with the O'Neals to see if a father and daughter can come back together after so many years apart?
