Levar Burton, Louis Gossett Jr., Leslie Uggams, Ben Vereen, John Amos, Georg Stanford Brown and Ed Asner talk about making the miniseries Roots tonight (2/5) at 7 pm on Pioneers of Television
Watching the "Roots" miniseries from the 1970s. I actually never saw it back when it first showed. It's a great series, with some incredible story lines that are hot, even by today's standards. But the old-time TV production values are pretty shocking. The slave cabins are large, spacious and well-lit, like the sound stages they were. And it seems that they cast every well-known white father figures against type -- Robert Reed (Brady Bunch dad), Lorne Greene (Bonanza dad), Chuck Connors (The Rifleman dad) and Ralph Waite (The Waltons dad) all play brutal, depraved or willfully ignorant slave owners. THre are some great cameos by Ed Asner (a conflicted slave ship captain) and Vic Morrow (Combat) who plays an nasty overseer. The black all-star cast is incredible: Leslie Uggams, Lou Gosset Jr., John Amos, Ben Vereen, Levar Burton, and (God bless us!) O.J. Simpson!
