Storyline

A Brand New Life centered on a millionaire father of three (Don Murray) who fell in love with and married a sweet blue-collar waitress (Barbara Eden) with three kids of her own. They combined families in Murray's Bel Air mansion in this Disney TV movie which led to a one-hour comedy series. Murray's kids (Byron Thames and Shawnee Smith- another son was away at boarding school) had been brought up free-spirited and liberal, while Eden's kids were used to a close-knit, conservative upbringing. Hijinks ensue. Written by Dzong A.D Tranchina

Two families collide!
12 March 1999 | by (LaPlace, LA.) – See all my reviews

Two people get married and the two respected siblings have to adjust to new family members. You have the heartthrob and the geek, you have the bombshell and the average girl. The Mom (Barabra Eden) and Dad try to make it work. Shown as a Walt Disney Presents and one of the last shows to be aired as WDP for NBC. Funny show!
