It can’t be easy trying to write storylines for a family comprised of 8 people, but luckily Sherwood Schwartz had a bit of help. The show’s creator would often use events from his own life as inspiration for plot lines in the show.
In fact, a large amount of the plot lines that the Brady daughters were involved in came from Schwartz’s experiences with his own daughter Hope, and the tribulations she went through growing up. Hope even appeared in a few episodes across the show’s run!
