"Seven Brides for Seven Brothers" is an American musical television series loosely based on the film, which ran on CBS from September 19, 1982 to March 23, 1983.


The series told the adventures of a parentless family of rowdy brothers trying to run the family ranch in northern California. Into the chaos came feisty Hannah, who married Adam and took on the task of bringing order to the household. The series contained about one musical number per episode, written by notable songwriter Jimmy Webb. Despite a small but dedicated fan following, the series was cancelled after one season.
