This daytime soap was a sequel of sorts to the primetime series Peyton Place, revolving around the lives of the citizens of that community. It did not carry over the stories, however, and only some of the original cast recreated their roles.
Did You Know?
NBC Programming replaced the daytime series "Bright Promise" (1969-1972) with "Return To Peyton Place" (1972-1974). The 20th Century Fox night-time NBC series "Peyton Place" was anticipated to distinguish the highly popular series for daytime programming. "Return To Peyton Place" replaced the "Bright Promise" time slot, as well as following the same daily taping schedule, afternoon-night rehearsal and tape, on Stage 9, NBC Burbank Color Studios. The other half of Studio 9 was used in the mornings for "Days of Our Lives" production. New RCA Color Cameras replaced camera equipment in the studio upgrade with the new Peyton Place series, improving transmission quality. See more
