Trivia

The interior set for the family's trailer was a real Airstream trailer which had been removed from its original frame. It was made about three feet wider than a normal Airstream trailer and then reassembled on a platform which could also accommodate lighting and camera equipment. Sections of the trailer set could be removed, one by one, to allow for various angles of camera coverage. See more »

Goofs

The interior Airstream set was about three feet wider than the Airstream trailer which was used for exterior shots. The extra width in the set's ceiling was covered by a removable, simulated skylight which is clearly visible throughout the series. The top of the trailer shown in exterior shots has no visible signs of a skylight. See more »

Quotes

[Opening Credits Narration, Season One]
Russel Greene: My name is Russell Greene. Maybe you passed me and my family out on the highway. Maybe you were driving some fancy sports car or an old beat up four-door. Or maybe you've had some hard times like us and you're out on the road with your house hitched up behind you, and America the Beautiful up ahead. But whoever you are you be sure to give us a wave the next time you drive by. Cause we're your neighbors, and we're all on the road together.

One of the best dramas on television these days!
11 April 1999 | by (US) – See all my reviews

We love watching this series! It is one of the few television series for the entire family. It has moral values, it is artistic and it is true to life. Promised Land is not necessary about a place in particular. It is about the entire U.S., where the family travels, or used to travel together in a trailer through out the country. The U.S. is a country of so much wealth that it flows with milk and honey. The Greenes are a family that trusts God, and sees angels, occasionally you can see an angel from another top series "Touched by an Angel" show up. Russell Greene, Gerald McRaney, is a wise and godly man. Claire, Wendy Phillips, is a school teacher. Don't we all need and thank them for our learning. Joshua, Austin O'Brien, is such a good kid! Dinah, Sarah Schaub, is always challenged with good and evil and chooses good. Nathaniel, Eddie Karr, always gets into trouble, but has a good adopted family to support him. Hattie, Celeste Holm, Academy Award winner for Gentleman's Agreement, plays a grandmother we would love to have, if ours isn't like her. I love Margot, Ashleigh Norman, sophisticated and poetic. She is so cool! L.T., Eugene Byrd, was a pain in the beginning but as his character develops he has become very likable, becoming a photographer, and writing a script for a competition on the controversial topic of the black family born to Thomas Jefferson. This is a wonderful show! I recommend it! We are on the road of life together!
