The Pilot was partially filmed in the California statehouse. The first day of shooting was November 22, 1963. Richard Crenna remembered being told in the middle of filming that John Kennedy had just been shot in Dallas. See more »
Democracy is a very bad form of government. But I ask you never to forget. All the others are so much worse.

The pilot was shot in the Capitol Building in Sacramento, and a full size replica of the California Assembly Chamber was the set for the first season. (a smaller set was used the second season). On the flight back from Sacramento the plane was delayed a few hours going around thunderstorms, and there was a real concern the plane might have gone down with the whole cast aboard. This drama had a strong following, and a letter writing campaign saved it from cancelation after season 1, but the ratings would not allow a season 3. For many years this show was made avalible overseas, I saw it regularly in Singapore during the early 70's. I guess USIS used it as a civics lesson.
