The story of the drama surrounding a family's adult siblings.
Did You Know?
Unusually for a show that turned out to be a critical and commercial hit, in the weeks before the first episode aired, this show went through several cast and crew changes. The Walker family matriarch, Iva, played by Betty Buckley
in the original pilot, was re-cast with Sally Field
, and renamed Nora. Walker brother Bryan, played by Jonathan LaPaglia
, was re-cast with Matthew Rhys
, renamed Kevin, and given a new backstory (instead of Bryan being an ex-husband and father, who was newly out of the closet, Kevin was a never-married lawyer, who was more comfortable with his homosexuality). Marti Noxon
was replaced as the showrunner by Greg Berlanti
, because of creative differences. See more
