The American Girls Trivia

There were five episodes of American Girls that were produced but did not air due to early cancellation of the series. Their titles were: "The Reluctant Candidate", "The Big Body Heist", "The Hundred Thousand Dollar Man", "An Autobiography", and "Little Girl Lost".

Rebecca and Amy worked for a newsmagazine show similar to "60 minutes" that was titled, "The American Report".

Rebecca was the older of the two American Girls and street-wise because she was from a large city. Amy was younger, recently graduated from college, naive, and from a small town. Francis Casey was the producer of "The American Report". Although he was located in New York City, he often helped the girls get out of dangerous circumstances. Jason Cook was the anchorman for "The American Report".

While American Girls only lasted for six episodes, Priscilla Barnes soon found herself on the immensely popular series, "Three's Company" in her role as "Nurse Terri Alden". Actually, the role probably wasn't totally satisfying for Priscilla at first. She was replacing actress Suzanne Somers who had become a TV goddess and Diva in her role as the super-sexy "Chrissy Snow". Suzanne was fired from Three's Company after she asked for what the network considered a ridiculous pay increase during contract negotiations. Fans did love Chrissy though and it was probably very difficult at first for Pricilla to fill Suzanne's shoes. Eventually her performance became an integral part of the series and she was accepted by the fans.
