    "All That Glitters" was a five night series which aired on the local Los Angeles Channel 13 television station, weekly. The entire series ran all the shows taped in the schedule. After Norman Lear canceled the show, the scenery was dumped. All permanent (which had been purchased) set dressing furniture pieces were divided up and relocated in the Lear Office empire.

    Two featured characters in "All That Glitters" were Eileen Brennan as Ma Packer and her lazy son, Sonny Packer, played by Tim Thomerson. Sonny's (Thomerson's) role idol and wannabe impersonation of an Elvis Presley character, always strumming his guitar, practicing swinging hips and rock movements was diligently encouraged by his Ma (Eileen Brennan) Packer. Their principal abode was a run down farm shack. In preparation for the first introduction of the outlandish pair, Herb and Eileen requested the littered straw and dirt studio set floor be inhabited with a small pot bellied pig and a dozen chickens. The first day to video-tape Ma and Sonny Packer's introduction in the series, Eileen picked up one of the hens, holding the chicken in her arms like a pet cat, petting and soothing the clucking hen while performing her character's motherly role. The entire week of staged scenes, Eileen carried the same hen in her arms, with the chickens pecking seeds from the straw on the ramshackle shack floor. The following week, the producers decided to cancel the livestock. Arriving early on set for rehearsal, Eileen and Herb confronted the dull witted lady producers. Where were the Chickens? Canceled to save money on a chicken wrangler and his flock of hens! The cast and crew waited for one hour while the wrangler and his flock of hens could arrive. Thereafter, Eileen, her chicken-hen co-star, with the floor flock of hens were featured until Ma moved uptown, with Sonny becoming a full fledged rock star on a local television station talent show, landing a gig at a local Western bar and stardom! Ma Packer, now a sexy glamorous theatrical agent, became a music-rock group phenomena.

    The show's female production staff, headed by Stephanie Sills, the producer, were a mirror image of the show's scenario. The female "All That Glitters" cast were located in a corporate kingdom titled "Globatron". Preliminary production (design) discussion centered upon a corporate logo for the fictional Globatron business empire. Stephanie Sills dictated that the logo should feature a rose, a world globe being held, balanced with-in the open rose (petals) blossom. Specifically, the rose represented a woman's sex organ trapping the world power within. In the main board room set, the sculptured logo was featured prominently, on the wall behind the corporate director's glass top desk and chair.
