Storyline

The stories centered around the daily lives of the wealthy Wheelers and Bellmans and the middle-class Marshalls and their ranching and oil interests. Beverlee McKinsey, as Iris, was the first daytime performer to be given starring credit. Written by Budikavlan

Texas went through many metamorphoses before it finally gelled towards the end of its run in 1982. By that time, Gail Kobe and Pamela Long were producing and writing the show. Long had a double role on the show in also portraying Ashley Linden Marshall. If you want to watch how it all began with Beverlee McKinsey in the starring role as Iris, be sure to check out the Texas section at the Procter & Gamble link above.
