Why A New Kind Of Family Was Cancelled
1 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In 1979 I was a then young 22 year old Hollywood short actor. I was hired on with A New Kind Of Family to work as a stand-in for the child regulars (i.e., Lowe and Hollander).

Aside from the fact that the show was not that great to begin with (good idea; badly executed), the star of the series, Eileen Brennan, was being courted to co-star in the movie version of "Private Benjamin". The only thing standing in her way was this series that was not too good.

Not knowing that Ms Brennan had this conflict, I had jotted down some thoughts to Dick Clair, one of the show's producers, on how to maybe make it better. It was all rather amusing when Ms Brennan sent her personal assistant out to the sound stage, demanding that I be forcefully removed and banned from the set. Clearly, Ms Brennan had no desire to want to see or hear of any ideas that might have helped the show.
