Trivia

Before the series aired, a commercial featured one of the cast members showing Burke how to hold a tray to wait tables. Burke gets irritated and questions why she should have to carry trays if she's the star of the show. Her fellow cast member says, "But Delta, what if this show doesn't make it?" Burke thinks for a moment and then continues with the lesson. The joke proved prophetic, the show was cancelled after one season. See more »

Found the season premiere of this on one of my old videotapes. A cool concept that turned out to be pretty lame. Delta Burke deserved better than this tripe. I remember watching this when it first aired and expected something exceptional. What a disappointment. The year 1992 was the perfect time to have a clever series with the Nashville country music scene as a backdrop. Can you imagine all of the great legends that could have made cameos??????? So many stories of Country-Western wanna-be's and has-been's could have been used as plot lines. And Delta auditioning and trying to find her way to stardom. Too bad this didn't work.
