The series ran on ABC from 1985 to 1988. The two-hour pilot movie was an adaptation of the fourth novel in the book series, Promised Land. The show garnered decent ratings, (however, it was placed against CBS's Falcon Crest and NBC's Miami Vice in its first season), despite frequent time slot changes and occasional preemption. In the end, all of the location shooting contributed to the show's demise, with cost being cited as one of the reasons why ABC canceled it.
While the show had a loyal following, Parker was disappointed with the final product (though he said it was not the fault of the performers). Urich, however, indicated it was his favorite acting role.
