The world was exactly like ours EXCEPT that women were the dominate gender. Women were the captains of industry and men were household workers, secretaries and waiters trying to attract attention with their sexuality. To add some additional twists to that twist there were characters into dominance/submission, a woman who had been a man (played by Linda Gray) and, of course, women CEOs having affairs with their secretaries.

Did You Know?


The series was video taped at the KTTV Studio, Hollywood, CA., where Norman Lear had his Empire (production office) established. The "All That Glitters" offices had been set up at the KTTV studios, assigned a stage where the art department and wardrobe had offices within the stage complex; including the stage control room--director, AD, tech director, lighting director, editor video-tape facility. Scenery was built outside of the studio at an independent Hollywood set construction shop (Dick Sheehan). Don Roberts asked for, and hired Hub Braden, joining Braden with Norman Lear's art department team, to be Production Designer, art directing and dressing the new series. The show's "soap" schedule identified with a daily drama, taped similar to a network day-time drama, for a night-time syndicated Monday through Friday viewing time slot. The scenario established a role reversal between male and female character. The comedic intent was when God made Woman, called Eve. Afterwards, God (a woman) felt Eve needed a partner creating Adam. The dominate female role "Eve" model had carried down through Centuries: Moses had been Mosea, a woman, Jesus had been Jessia, a woman, not King Louis XIV, but Queen Louisa XIV. Women ran the corporate world with a woman president. The counter-part for office personnel was a male secretary, no house-wife but a house-husband, staying at home to clean, raise the kids, cook, minding the home requirements! An interesting premise for a twist of fate. Dialogue and situations in the projected scenarios expanded this premise. Norman Lear went as far as to make the Producing staff all female, women Producers including the production personnel, except for Production Designer Hub Braden, the Director Herb Kenwith, Prop-master Warren Schaffer, stage hands, and camera men and studio facility support technicians.

Mysterious disapearance
13 June 2003 | by (Wenonah, NJ) – See all my reviews

I have looked for references to this show for several years but could not remember the title. I finally got and answer from Tvpipeline and am releived to know that I did not imagine this whole plot. Several of the actors were busy in commercials and this was the only show in which I found them. The show, brief as it was, was most interesting and far ahead of its time. I hope someone shows it again!
