John C. McGinley,
The two part miniseries was filmed entirely on-location. The house interiors were filmed in Brentwood. The horse ranch was filmed in the Malibu Canyon below Mullholland. Lorimar Television's offices were located at the MGM-Sony Studio in Culver City. When Lorimar used a soundstage for any of their productions, a percentage charge would be incurred by the production paid to the studio. By not filming on the lot, this charge exempted the production. A show production office was established in an off lot office rental facility maintained by Lorimar. The Lorimar Art Department, construction, paint, sign shop, and property departments remained on the lot unaffected by this additional rate charge. See more »
I know very well what Hope's motivation was in cooperating with Walker, since I worked with her for months on this story.
She was most of all concerned for the welfare of her children, whom Walker had threatened, as well her own safety.
Since he was demonstrably a killer -- a shot in her boyfriend's head proved that -- she had every reason to believe he'd fulfill his threats to her and her kids. She cooperated the same way any prisoner does with terrorist captors: do what it takes to survive.
She wasn't some unwitting or dimwitted airhead. Survival was her motivation and she succeeded. How well or how poorly the film showed that is for others to say.
