As the Associated Press wrote: "Six youngsters who only recently met line up outside a Los Angeles, Ca. courtroom June 18, 1969, to await approval of contracts calling for them to play brothers and sisters on a new television series. The series, called The Brady Bunch, is about a widower with three boys who marries a widow with three girls and will premiere on ABC-TV in September.
