Trivia

MGM and CBS TV initially ordered 6 programs after approving the 90 minute pilot. The original film musical "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" established the basis for a musical TV series, which was to include a musical (staged song and dance) sequence in the one hour long scenario. David Gerber had established a location filming company on a distant location far from Culver City: Murphy (where he owned the Murphy Hotel), and in Angels Camp, Sonora, all located in the Mother Lode foothills of the Sierra Mountains, in the heart of Calaveras County. Building this musical segment into each hour program was difficult based upon rehearsing music, dance moves, and placing the number in a location where the number could be performed. Plus the fact the seven lead brothers were neither dancers nor singers! Although the ratings numbers for CBS were fairly good, the prospect of the series renewal was facing the actor-leads demanding a raise in salary; with another demand of each featured cast being provided with a star motor home dressing room (plus Terri = 8 total motor home trailer-vehicles). The producers ploy of offering a six show location deal to the crew for minimum pay, which included location $$ for being on location, was an incentive under the low job market-summer prospects in Hollywood. After four programs were in the can, with two to complete, the producers announced an additional four shows had been ordered. This maneuver continued until a full twenty two episodes were completed (for a full show order). The original company had been assembled in Murphy in late April. The show wrapped up in Murphy, in January 1983. The cast and crew would have to wait until late Spring for a renewal order. CBS TV canceled the show in May 1983. See more »

Series about orphaned ranchers.
7 May 2005 | by (South Dakota) – See all my reviews

First of all, the title probably wasn't the best, but what would have been a better title? Maybe they should have cut the number of brothers and given it a different title. "Seven Brides For Seven Brothers" and "The Magnificent Seven" are rather famous titles in the history of Western cinema, but younger people in 1982-1983 weren't familiar with them. The seven orphan brothers run a ranch in California. They are rather hard up for money. They had an old International pickup and a late-model Jeep. There was one episode where they broke into a bankrupt grain warehouse to get some feed they owned in there but weren't allowed to get. This was obviously based on the Wayne Cryts soybean incident in southeastern Missouri. In another episode there were cattle rustlers and they had to chase a potload of stolen cattle in the Jeep and shoot out a front tire. There was another episode with a blizzard.
