The two part mini-series was filmed entirely on locations. The house interiors were filmed in Brentwood. The horse ranch was filmed in the Malibou Canyon below Mullholland. Lorimar Television's offices were located at the MGM-Sony Studio in Culver City. When Lorimar used a sound stage for any of their productions, a percentage charge would be incurred by the production paid to the studio. By not filming on the lot, this (on-lot filming) charge exempted the production. A show production office was established in an off lot office rental facility maintained by Lorimar. The Lorimar art department, construction, paint, sign-shop, property departments remained on the lot unaffected by this additional rate charge.
