Married With Children Facts That You Didn’t Know
20. $1 Million Per Episode
Although you might think thanks to Peggy’s giant-red hair, that everything was on a strict and low budget, right? But the truth goes beyond that. There was nothing cheap about this tv show. Literally. Every episode cost $1 Million to produce, making it one of the most expensive shows on TV at the time.
The TV show was without any special effects, but they had Peggy. The main actresses had a different outfit in almost every scene and dressing her up was anything but cheap. Add to that salaries and constant fee for people who were offended by the show. The show was a huge expanse for, at the time, new FOX network.
