I worked on The Rousters
18 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I worked on this show as a local 724 construction laborer. The whole "sink the love boat" theme was as ill-advised a marketing strategy as I've ever seen (I'm now a corp communications pro). But, the actors were very nice people, and I enjoyed working myself crazy on the show. Our location was at Pt.Fermin, at the end of San Pedro, Calif., near LA Harbor. We were on a bluff below an old Army base with a Korean War memorial at the top of the hill. Fantastic views and a nice breeze off the water. I did have to commute more than 2 hours to get home every day (the Harbor Fwy...Ugh) but I got the chance to do a lot of different things. I also worked on Hardcastle and McCormick and Riptide (three days in the water building a boat ramp for a stunt...chilly....), another pair of Cannell Prod. shows. But I'll always remember The Rousters -- the trailer with four wild walls, Georg Stanford Browne directing an episode as though it were a Class A feature, Shaky Dave the sign painter, Reggie the foreman, Ron Macdonald the labor foreman... The carnival crew that rigged the big top and ran the carny rides... Wild times.
