Did You Know?


The original pilot episode, known as Cass Malloy (1982), was produced by Lorimar Television Production and aired on CBS in 1982. Annie Potts was originally cast in the title role, but left before production began. Potts was replaced by Caroline McWilliams. Supporting cast members included Corey Feldman, Dick Butkus, Glynn Turman, Lou Richards, and George Wyner. The pilot was shot at KTLA Studios (now known as Sunset Bronson Studios). CBS ultimately passed on Cass Malloy. When the project was picked up for syndication in 1984, it was retitled She's the Sheriff and Suzanne Somers was cast in the lead role. Lou Richards and George Wyner were the only two actors from the original pilot that were cast in the series. See more »

I loved this show!
6 April 2010 | by Muscle_QueenSee all my reviews

I loved this show, but then again I was only 8 years old. That is the mental capacity you need to have to enjoy this poor excuse for a TV sitcom. I am surprised that it lasted for more than one season. This could not have had really good ratings. With the high saturation of successful TV sitcoms in the 1980's, this one should have been red lighted after episode one. The set looked so cheap, the dialog god awful and the jokes not funny. I doubt that this would ever go to DVD. If it does then they should expect to lose money. I am not surprised because Suzanne Sommers couldn't act her way out of a paper bag. Don't get me wrong I like Suzanne (I enjoyed her cameo in Serial Mom), but she should stick to infomercials peddling crappy products.
