The Greg Brady Project

Welcome to the official Barry Williams' blog

My friends call me Barry. From time to time I also hear the name Greg. Yeah, as in Greg Brady. The Brady Bunch represents a fun time in my life. But it’s only part of the story. There’s more to say and that’s what The Greg Brady Project is all about – a place to say it. So, I’ve invited some friends to join me and share their perspectives on the Brady’s, the 70′s and just about everything else. Now, I’m inviting you…

Brady Creator Gets Star Treatment

written by Eric Greenberg in Blog | 5 comments

What’s the secret to having a lasting marriage AND a beautiful actress on your arm at age 91? Just create one of the most loved TV shows of all time. Want a woman for each arm? Easy. Just create two of them. It seems to be working for Sherwood Schwartz, the brain behind “The Brady Bunch” and “Gilligan’s Island.” If an Emmy, a WGA Award, and a few TV Land Awards weren’t enough, the TV legend now has his own piece of sidewalk on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. His star was unveiled at 6541 Hollywood Boulevard Friday in front of Brady cast members Florence Henderson, Chris Knight and Susan Olsen as well as Gilligan’s Dawn Wells. Barry was thinking of him from Kansas City where he’s still performing in “Married Alive.” I suspect Sherwood understands and is thrilled to see a career he helped launch still going strong all these years later.

By the way, Sherwood was honored for his TV work, but could have been eligible for several of the Walk of Fame’s five categories: Motion Pictures, Television, Recording, Radio and Live Theatre/Live Performance. He started his career writing for Bob Hope’s radio show, spent several years writing performances for the Army, and co-wrote two of TV’s most memorable theme songs. With a recent revival of his play “Rockers” and other projects in development, he doesn’t show signs of slowing down any time soon.

Congratulations from The Greg Brady Project, Sherwood. Keep it up!

    I can’t think of anyone more deserving of the honor. American culture without “Gilligan’s Island” or “The Brady Bunch”? Unthinkable.

    I totally agree with Bob!

    How cool that he is still so active, too! :)

    Isn’t this groovy? Sherwood has a Star. I wish I could have been there to celebrate this occasion with him. In spirit, from KS, I did. Congratulations Sherwood, you are very deserving.

    It was a great morning. I was there and got to speak with Sherwood, Dawn, and Chris. Flo and Susan disappeared though! Now it’s time for Barry to get the Star treatment!

    I had the pleasure of attending as well. It was a very fun morning and a true dream come true to be able to meet Mr. Schwartz and some of the others.

    If anyone is interested, I’ve posted a video of the event here:
