The television series Scarecrow and Mrs King is about a mythical 'Agency' and the adventures of two of its members - Lee Stetson (played by Bruce Boxleitner, codename 'Scarecrow') and Amanda King (played by Kate Jackson).
The two main protagonists of the television series meet in strange circumstances in the series premiere of Scarecrow and Mrs King, which eventually results in Amanda King joining the 'Agency' and becoming a full agent. As the episodes and series develop, Lee and Amanda eventually develop a romantic relationship.
Scarecrow and Mrs King enjoyed widespread mainstream appeal, and its place in the public conscience was confirmed by its multiple Emmy Award nominations during its relatively short 4-season run. While it only won 1 minor Emmy, it was one of the most popular television series in its time, and developed a cult following that still survives to this day, a decade and a half after its last episode ran on television. Scarecrow and mrs king complete dvd set boxed is now available, and contains all 88 episodes and 4 seasons of this niche, popular television series. Each episode of Scarecrow and Mrs King ran on average for about 60 minutes.
Other than the pilot episode in which the two protagonists of Scarecrow and Mrs King were introduced to each other, other notable episodes of the television series included 'Welcome to America, Mr Brand', ' Service Above and Beyond', ' The Stemwinders, and 'Welcome to the Neighborhood'. The developing romance between Lee and Amanda was a major contribution to the lasting appeal of Scarecrow and Mrs King, and a large reason for viewers continuing to tune in weekly to the broadcasts.
Today, a thriving Scarecrow and Mrs King fan community exists, which is phenomenal given the series ended so long ago. The Scarecrow and Mrs King series was also responsible for raising the public profile of both its main stars, Bruce Boxleitner and Kate Jackson. In particular, Jackson was diagnosed with breast cancer before the 4th season of Scarecrow and Mrs King, resulting in a much-diminished role for her in this season. It was also the main reason for the cancellation of the Scarecrow and Mrs King television series, since it would be almost impossible to replace her in the Amanda King role. Kate Jackson would go on to fully recover from her illness, and go on to become a respected actress and director in future productions.
Bruce Boxleitner, Scarecrow and Mrs King's other lead actor, went on to take part in major Hollywood productions such as Tron and Tron: Legacy as well.
No discussion about Scarecrow and Mrs King would be complete without a mention of the creators, Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner. They were responsible for crafting an upbeat, entertaining television series that gave joy to many viewers during its run. In addition to the 2 lead characters, the supplementary characters also provided great entertainment with well-written scripts, such as Dotty (Amanda King's mother in the show). While the premise of Scarecrow and Mrs King may seem rather cliched, the producers were able to turn a formulaic approach to a television series, into an extremely popular and entertaining show that captured the imagination of many a viewer in America.
