The Bradys leave their familiar home for a place on the beach after being chosen to star in their own weekly variety show. Produced without permission by Sid and Marty Krofft, the show is considered to be outside of the Brady Bunch continuity. "The Brady Bunch Hour" began as a 60 minute special titled "The Brady Bunch Variety Hour" which aired on ABC on November 28, 1976. The success of this special led to a semi-regular series of which eight additional 60 minute episodes were produced and aired from January to May 1977. None of the installments were ever repeated in their entirety on network television, and the show is best remembered for Geri Reischl replacing Eve Plumb as "Fake" Jan.
