The series has a place in my heart, too. I was the location casting director, the one who cast the extras and local talent - all of whom were wonderful to work with! On many mornings the extras had to be at the hotel, to load up on buses, at 4:30 am, and the ride out to the set could take as long as 1 1/2 hours each way. They were always on time, carrying their pillows to sleep on the bus, and would cheerfully, although a little sleepy, head off to wardrobe and make-up at 6:00 am - Troopers, all of them! I remember getting a call from the head of production at Fox, complementing us on the amazing extras! And how happy he was with their work on the series. There were 8 episodes shot but only a few aired. We were up against some pretty heavy competition on the other networks, and many of us felt that we could have survived if we are only airing on a different day.
