Donny and Marie

Long running variety show, featuring the brother-sister singing duo of Donny and Marie Osmond. The first season also featured all of the Osmond families, but Donny and Marie were obviously the most popular of the bunch so the rest were phased into occasional appearances.

    In the summer of 1979, Ralph Nelson was the principle motivation in directing an Osmond (Family) Productions produced NBC TV Movie of the Week special "Christmas Lilies of the Field" featuring Billy Dee Williams (Homer Schmidt) and Maria Schell (Mother Maria). The NBC film special, aired on December 29, 1979, was planned as a pilot-pick-up order for a mid-season 1980 NBC series replacement. The replacement series was to be based at the hometown Osmond Family Television Studio Production facility, located at 1240 E. 800 N. in Orem, Utah. The film's exterior location Chapel (interiors) and exterior Mother Maria's quarters (interiors) were built on State of Utah owned land, 75 miles North-West, from the Orem-Provo Osmond's studio. The production planned to use this Chapel and Mother Maria's abode location exteriors/interiors for the proposed series. The MOW filmed additional locations in the Salt Lake area. The Osmond brothers and Ralph Nelson would produce the series, Ralph Nelson directing the NBC TV series "Lilies of the Field". The December 29th, 1979, MOW's poor and slim viewer ratings resulted in cancellation of any further series development.
