series that hearkens back to Hollywood's studio days
"Bracken's World" was in syndication on a New York City TV channel back in the mid-to-late '70s, about five years after it actually aired. It was an interesting show that centered around a powerful producer (Leslie Nielsen) and his studio's group of up and coming starlets. It only ran a year, probably because the concept of the studio system was very dated by 1970, and the show was set in modern times.
Nevertheless, the series had a wonderful cast, including the handsome Peter Haskell, Eleanor Parker, Madelyn Rhue, Dennis Cole, Bettye Ackerman, Karen Jenkens, Jeanne Cooper, Laraine Stephens, and Leslie Nielson. The story lines were very good also. I wish there were a cable station where some of these old dramas could be recycled.
