House Calls Trivia

A House Calls TV pilot was produced but it was never broadcast.

Lynn Redgrave was fired from the show after the second season. She said that it was because the studio wouldn't let her breat feed her newborn baby between takes. She later sued Universal but the suit was eventually dismissed. Sharon Gless stepped in to replace her character as Dr. Michael's love interest. The change did nothing for the ratings but Gless went on to star on the hit series, "Cagney and Lacey" the very next season!

Many people have said that House Calls never made it into reruns because of the breat feeding controversy but it's more likely that the poor ratings and the relatively small number of episodes produced are the real reasons.

This series was based upon a 1978 movie also titled, "House Calls" that starred Walter Matthau, Glenda Jackson, Art Carney and Richard Benjamin.

Wayne Rogers and Redgrave were both nominated for Emmy Awards for their roles on House Calls and Redgrave also got a Golden Globe nomination.
