    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.

    The series was video taped at the KTTV Studio, Hollywood, CA., where Norman Lear had his Empire (production office) established. The "All That Glitters" offices had been set up at the KTTV studios, assigned a stage where the art department and wardrobe had offices within the stage complex; including the stage control room--director, AD, tech director, lighting director, editor video-tape facility. Scenery was built outside of the studio at an independent Hollywood set construction shop (Dick Sheehan). Don Roberts asked for, and hired Hub Braden, joining Braden with Norman Lear's art department team, to be Production Designer, art directing and dressing the new series. The show's "soap" schedule identified with a daily drama, taped similar to a network day-time drama, for a night-time syndicated Monday through Friday viewing time slot. The scenario established a role reversal between male and female character. The comedic intent was when God made Woman, called Eve. Afterwards, God (a woman) felt Eve needed a partner creating Adam. The dominate female role "Eve" model had carried down through Centuries: Moses had been Mosea, a woman, Jesus had been Jessia, a woman, not King Louis XIV, but Queen Louisa XIV. Women ran the corporate world with a woman president. The counter-part for office personnel was a male secretary, no house-wife but a house-husband, staying at home to clean, raise the kids, cook, minding the home requirements! An interesting premise for a twist of fate. Dialogue and situations in the projected scenarios expanded this premise. Norman Lear went as far as to make the Producing staff all female, women Producers including the production personnel, except for Production Designer Hub Braden, the Director Herb Kenwith, Prop-master Warren Schaffer, stage hands, and camera men and studio facility support technicians.
