Trivia

This telefilm was originally intended to be the pilot for an MTM series called "Kinfolk." Although there was news of the series being in production, apparently none of the networks were interested in picking up the show (CBS would have had the first crack at buying it). Thus, "Kinfolk" was permanently shelved. See more »
