Green Acres: Original Series Director Wants to Continue Classic Sitcom

19 November 2007 8:25 AM, PST | | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

It's been over three decades since Green Acres went off the air. Is it time to go back to country life in Hooterville?

Green Acres debuted on September 15, 1965 on CBS as a spin-off of The Beverly Hillbillies and Petticoat Junction. The sitcom followed New York attorney Oliver Wendell Douglas (Eddie Albert) as he lived out his life-long fantasy of being a farmer. His glamorous and ditzy wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) was dragged unwillingly from her sophisticated life to live in a ramshackle farm in Hooterville. The bizarre small town was populated by a wide variety of eccentric characters like dimwitted farmhand Eb Dawson (Tom Lester), oily salesman Mr. Haney (Pat Buttram), scatterbrained county agent Hank Kimball (Alvy Moore), elderly farmers Fred and Doris Ziffel (Hank Patterson and Barbara Pepper, later Fran Ryan) and their "son," Arnold the pig.

Like Hillbillies and Junction, Acres became incredibly popular and the show ran for 170 episodes. »
