Trivia:
This was set to star Priscilla Barnes as the sheriff. Shortly before production began, however, Somers was brought in as her replacement. The move was ironic as Barnes had replaced Somers in _"Three's Company " (1977)_.See more »

Small point ..., 16 June 2010
Author: sychonic

I don't remember much about the show, except that Somers is an attractive actress, both of physically (of course) but more importantly as a person.

But this was part of an odd experiment where in the late 1980s, the powers that be, on NBC, tried to start "prime time" at 7:30 PM rather than 8PM.

I think they figured if they could rope a viewer in early they might be able to keep that viewer for the following shows.

Didn't work -- though interesting that Fox did something similar, successfully very soon after.
