I agree, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: THE WAY WE ALL BECAME THE BRADY BUNCH does make a fine, fine holiday gift! And that cover: thanks to Chris Phillips‘ illustration, all it needs is a red bow on top to be gift-ready!
So cool to see The Brady Bunch and THE WAY WE ALL BECAME THE BRADY BUNCH mashed up with Star Trek, especially since the two shows are among the most successful syndicated series in TV history. Here, DailyStarTrekNews.com’s Alison Pitt writes about Star Trek‘s original captain, Jeffrey Hunter, and how he was told he was too handsome to play Mike Brady, a role he desperately wanted.
Thank you Bookspin, a great blog for finding new works of nonfiction (my most loved genre of books), for a shoutout to THE WAY WE ALL BECAME THE BRADY BUNCH!
Just one more day until The Way We All Became The Brady Bunch is on sale! Today, Entertainment Weekly ran an excerpt, all about the (much exaggerated) legend of Gene Hackman almost being cast as primetime superdad Mike Brady. Read it HERE, and then read the whole book on December 3!
And thank you, EW, the magazine that made me want to be an entertainment writer.
Thanks to Daniel Ford at the Writer’s Bone podcast for including The Way We All Became The Brady Bunch on the list of books that should be on your radar this holiday season. I might be more than a little biased, but I think the book would make the grooviest of holiday gifts for, obviously, all the Brady fans on your gift list, but also for any TV fan who will appreciate the influence The Brady Bunch has had — and continues to have! — across so many areas of pop culture.
