Trivia

MGM and CBS TV initially ordered 6 programs after approving the 90 minute pilot. The original film musical "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" established the basis for a musical TV series, which was to include a musical (staged song and dance) sequence in the one hour long scenario. David Gerber had established a location filming company on a distant location far from Culver City: Murphys (where he owned the Murphys Hotel), and in Angels Camp, Sonora, all located in the Mother Lode foothills of the Sierra Mountains, in the heart of Calaveras County. Building this musical segment into each hour program was difficult based upon rehearsing music, dance moves, and placing the number in a location where the number could be performed. Plus the fact the seven lead brothers were neither dancers nor singers! Although the ratings numbers for CBS were fairly good, the prospect of the series renewal was facing the actor-leads demanding a raise in salary; with another demand of each featured cast being provided with a star motor home dressing room (plus Terri = 8 total motor home trailer-vehicles). The producers ploy of offering a six show location deal to the crew for minimum pay, which included location $$ for being on location, was an incentive under the low job market-summer prospects in Hollywood. After four programs were in the can, with two to complete, the producers announced an additional four shows had been ordered. This maneuver continued until a full twenty two episodes were completed (for a full show order). The original company had been assembled in Murphys in late April. The show wrapped up in Murphys, in January 1983. The cast and crew would have to wait until late Spring for a renewal order. CBS TV canceled the show in May 1983. See more »

Wholesome show that is still relevant
3 April 2010 | by fidgeeSee all my reviews

I admit, I loved this show because I loved the original musical, but I was sad to see it go away to be kept in some dust-covered bin in a Hollywood storage vault! Regardless of all my friends teasing me because they thought it was a "corny show", I couldn't wait to see each episode! (I was raised by my grandparents so perhaps that's why I've always been drawn to the more reserved, wholesome, and yes, sometimes "corny" stuff.) I wish some studio exec would recognize that there are plenty of networks out there now (ie: Hallmark, ABC Family, Nic....) that have the perfect format for shows like this. If there had been more than just the "Big three" networks around when the show was produced, it would have had a better chance. But it's sad to think of it wasting away when it could be entertaining and influencing a new (and not-so-new) audience.
