Polly Holliday was added to the cast after Eileen Brennan was seriously injured after being struck by a speeding car travelling at 50 miles an hour. Polly was intended as a short-term replacement character, but the show was cancelled after she appeared in just two episodes. It was said that the program's marginal ratings, along with Eileen's extended hiatus due to her injuries, made it no longer viable to continue production on the series.
