December 30, 1999Hope you all are enjoying the holidays! The update this time mainly consists of TONS of photos. Be sure to check them out, but also be sure to check out a slideshow I (Jeff) made. To view it, click here. That will take you to a page that will inform you of what you need to view it. Consider it a holiday treat!
November 27, 1999Lee has been mighty busy in the UK as of late. For information on what he's doing there, be sure to check out CYBORG. John was lucky enough to see a taping of Lee's new show, "Too Much Sun," and has his story about it on his site.
November 7, 1999It certainly has been a while coming, but we have an update for you today. Check out the Photos page for twenty-seven new photos. Along with the photos, I did a bit of re-organizing to that section.
Since the last update, lots of new information has become availble regarding Lee's new British Sitcom. John at CYBORG has done a great job compiling info so check out his page on Lee's show, Too Much Sun.
That's all for today's update. Be sure to subscribe to the mailing list if you haven't already. List members will get the latest news first. Until next time.
September 19, 1999It looks as if the Captiva Island show mentioned in the Parade article isn't going to happen. For more info, check out the author's website.
Good news, however, from the same article. John from CYBORG has reported that Lee is scheduled to start filming a British sitcom. Check out his page for more info.
August 22, 1999Lee was mentioned in today's Parade magazine. cubster scanned the mention and you can view it here.
Don't forget that tomorrow is our one year anniversary!
As some of you might have previously heard, at one time a Big Valley reunion movie was being talked about. At the moment, Fox seems to be at a stand-still. To let Fox know the movie should be made, Big Valley fans across the Internet have started a campaign. To help out, send a letter to Fox at the address below. If you'd like to help, but don't know exactly what to say, there is a form letter below the address.
20th Century Fox
C/O Business Affairs Office
10201 Pico Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90035
To whom it may concern:
This letter is to let you know that there is a great deal of sentiment out here in viewing-land that a Big Valley reunion tv-movie would be a very good thing. There is a considerable base of Big Valley fans over a wide age-span, both people who watched it in its original broadcast and those who have become fans during syndication over the years. I would like to stress that these fans would not be satisfied with a re-cast of the Barkley characters but would like to have the original actors playing the original Barkley roles. Adding young faces for the next Barkley generation is perfectly understandable and indeed desirable, but those people should be additional to and not replacing the original Big Valley actors in their original roles.
Thank you very much for your attention.

According to Peter Breck, filming of the "Big Valley" movie should begin this
summer, hopefully airing this fall. What network it will be on is not sure at this, but
Fox is financing it, so that is a possibilty.

show so check your local listings for time and channel.
