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 »

Great Family Show
24 April 2001 | by See all my reviews

Seven brides For Seven Brothers was a great family show. It starred many of today's favorite actors including: Richard Dean Anderson, Drake Hogstyn, Peter Horton, Terri Treas, Roger Wilson, and River Phoenix. It had wonderful music written by Jimmy Webb especially for the show. If it had been allowed to continue, I think that it would have done very well in the ratings. The story lines were about how a family of seven brothers (with the eldest brother's wife) tried to make a living on their ranch after being orphaned ten years earlier. it would have been interesting to find out more about the family's past, but the show was cancelled before we really got to know them better.
