The Bradys Get Political
Mike and Carol Brady and their brood are due to return, this time for an irreverent small-screen movie, reports Variety. The trade paper says that casting is soon set to begin on "The Brady Bunch in the White House," a Fox TV feature about patriarch Mike Brady's unlikely road to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. (Quick, name the Bradys' current address.) "The Brady Bunch Movie" (1995) and "A Very Brady Sequel" (1996) leading actors Shelley Long and Gary Cole, who played the parents originally played on the '70s TV series by Florence Henderson and the late Robert Reed, are being wooed to resume their roles for this new outing. The story is said to concern son Bobby Brady's finding a $67 million lottery ticket. Dad Brady decides that the proper winner must be found, and his ethical search sparks national attention -- including that of the American President, who just happens to be searching for an ethical vice-presidential candidate at the time. Ultimately the commander in chief must resign . . . and you'll never guess what happens next. Fox is attempting to complete shooting before this summer's potential actors' strike.
