1964 through 1969

In 1983 Neal and George co-wrote a short story that chronicled their adventures from 1964 through 1969. The story was well received in the literary community and we received several offers to turn the story into full length novels. We approved two authors to take our story and develop their own interpretations. Both books (the latter actually a series of four books) became best sellers and eventually were turned into screenplays as well. Band of Brothers was a huge success as an HBO mini-series. Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants also became a box-office hit and spawned a sequel movie that actually was more true to actual events than the books.

The Georgeless Bunch

In 1969, George was up for the role as Greg Brady on the show The Brady Bunch. However, George did not get the part due to "accidentally" throwing a football at Maureen McCormick's face after she rejected his awkward advances (well, at least, they were awkward in 1969. Offering to show someone your hard drive didn't work back then. Well, actually, it doesn't work now, either. What were you thinking, George?). On the plus side, the football-in-Marsha's-nose bit ended up in a later episode. George received no compensation, as the show's producers claim that Eve Plumb came up with the idea of causing injury to Marsha's face. Neal was also determined to land a role in a 70s television show, but could not do so, probably because he kept trying out for roles that he was obviously not a match for (such as Mr. Roeper and/or Mrs. Roeper of Three's Company fame).
